It is important that the Church of London, which has now lost its ruler, should receive for its new bishop a man whose personal merit, attainments in learning, and prudence in managing public business shall not be unworthy of the dignity of that see.

If you modestly enjoy your fame you are not unworthy to rank with the holy.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
