The character of Jesus…

The character of Jesus has not only been the highest pattern of virtue, but the strongest incentive in its practice; it has exacted so deep an influence that it may be truly said that the simple record of three short years of active life has done more to regenerate and to soften mankind than all the dispositions of philosophers and all the exhortations of moralists.

William E. H. Lecky, quoted in The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable? by F. F. Bruce, p. 3
