„No word in our language — not even "Socialism"— has been employed more loosely than "Mysticism."“

—  William Ralph Inge
Context: No word in our language — not even "Socialism"— has been employed more loosely than "Mysticism." … The history of the word begins in close connexion with the Greek mysteries. A mystic is one who has been, or is being, initiated into some esoteric knowledge of Divine things, about which he must keep his mouth shut… Christian Mysticism (1899) http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14596, Preface

„True contemplation considers Reality (or Being) in its manifestations as well as in its origin. If this is remembered, there need be no conflict between social morality and the inner life.“

—  William Ralph Inge
Context: True contemplation considers Reality (or Being) in its manifestations as well as in its origin. If this is remembered, there need be no conflict between social morality and the inner life. Eckhart recognises that it is a harder and a nobler task to preserve detachment in a crowd than in a cell; the little daily sacrifices of family life are often a greater trial than selfimposed mortifications. "We need not destroy any little good in ourselves for the sake of a better, but we should strive to grasp every truth in its highest meaning, for no one good contradicts another." "Love God, and do as you like, say the Free Spirits. Yes; but as long as you like anything contrary to God's will, you do not love Him." There is much more of the same kind in Eckhart's sermons — as good and sensible doctrine as one could find anywhere. Light, Life, and Love: Selections from the German Mystics of the Middle Ages (1904) http://www.ccel.org/ccel/inge/light.toc.html, p. xxx - PDF and epub at Google Books http://books.google.com/books?id=Wt4PAAAAYAAJ

„The phase of thought or feeling which we call Mysticism has its origin in that which is the raw material of all religion, and perhaps of all philosophy and art as well, namely, that dim consciousness of the beyond, which is part of our nature as human beings.“

—  William Ralph Inge
Context: The phase of thought or feeling which we call Mysticism has its origin in that which is the raw material of all religion, and perhaps of all philosophy and art as well, namely, that dim consciousness of the beyond, which is part of our nature as human beings. Men have given different names to these "obstinate questionings of sense and outward things." We may call them, if we will, a sort of higher instinct, perhaps an anticipation of the evolutionary process; or an extension of the frontier of consciousness; or, in religious language, the voice of God speaking to us. Mysticism arises when we try to bring this higher consciousness into relation with the other contents of our minds. Christian Mysticism (1899), Preface

„Worry is interest paid on trouble before it falls due.“

—  William Ralph Inge
Attributed to Inge in The Columbia Dictionary of Quotations (1993), which cites the London Observer, 14 February 1932. However, this aphorism was in circulation decades earlier, e.g., it features in an advertisement in The Grape Belt, 2 October 1906, p. 5 http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=LY9CAAAAIBAJ&sjid=tLkMAAAAIBAJ&pg=5967,3394664&dq=worry-is-interest-paid-on-trouble-before-it-falls-due&hl=en
