"A century ago, men were following, with bated breath, the march of #Napoleon, and waiting with feverish impatience for the latest news of the wars. And all the while, in their own homes, babies were being born. But who could think about babies? Everybody was thinking about battles.
"In one year, lying midway between #Trafalgar and #Waterloo, there stole into the world a host of #heroes! During that one year, 1809, #Gladstone was born at Liverpool; Alfred #Tennyson was born at the Somersby rectory, and #OliverWendellHolmes made his first appearance at Massachusetts. On the very self-same day of that self-same year #CharlesDarwin made his debut at Shrewsbury, and #AbrahamLincoln drew his first breath at Old Kentucky. Music was enriched by the advent of Frédéric #Chopin at Warsaw, and of Felix #Mendelssohn at Hamburg... #SamuelMorley, #EdwinFitzgerald, #ElizabethBarrettBrowning, #FrancisKemple. But nobody thought of #babies. Everybody was thinking of battles. Yet viewing that age in the truer perspective which the distance of a hundred years enables us to command, we may well ask ourselves, ‘Which of the battles of #1809 mattered more than the babies of 1809?’
"We fancy that #God can only manage His world by big battalions abroad, when all the while He is doing it by #beautifulbabies. When a wrong wants righting, or a work wants doing, or a truth wants preaching, or a continent wants opening, God sends a baby into the world to do it. That is why, long, long ago, a babe was born at Bethlehem.”
