Emerson: The Sabbath and the dignity of spiritual being

"Two inestimable advantages Christianity has given us; first; the Sabbath, the jubilee of the whole world; whose light dawns welcome alike into the closet of the philosopher, into the garret of toil, and into prison cells, and everywhere suggests, even to the vile, the dignity of spiritual being."

Ralph Waldo Emerson, from "The Divinity School Address"
