About this Quote

This quote by William Ralph Inge speaks with the concept that individuals often error being fended off by the actions of other individuals as being brought in to something higher. Inge recommends that when individuals feel a sense of connection to something bigger than themselves, they might mistakenly attribute it to God or Nature, when in reality it is a reaction to the unfavorable actions of other people. This might be translated as a commentary on the power of human relationships and how they can form our perception of the world. Inge suggests that when we are surrounded by unfavorable people, we may be driven away from them and towards something more positive, such as God or Nature. This quote motivates us to be mindful of our relationships and how they can affect our outlook on life.
