Quote by Edwin Hubbell Chapin
There is no tariff so injurious as that with which sectarian bigotry guards its commodities. It dwarfs the soul by shutting out truths from other continents of thought, and checks the circulation of its own.
This quote highlights the detrimental impact of sectarian bigotry. It emphasizes that the restriction of different ideas and beliefs prevents intellectual growth and development, limiting one's perspective to a narrow worldview. It implies that sectarian bigotry acts as a tariff, hindering the exchange of knowledge and understanding between different cultures and beliefs. The quote urges individuals to break free from this mental confinement and embrace a more diverse and open-minded approach in order to expand intellectual horizons and enrich their souls.
