"Meanwhile I have always been, as in my childhood, a good deal of a nonconformist, and disposed to a certain rebellion.... So much of the spirit that opposes the community I have and have always had in me, simply, elementally, deeply. Over against this natural ineffectiveness in serving the community, and over against this rebellion, there has always stood the interest which has taught me what I nowadays try to express by teaching, that we are saved through the community." Josiah Royce, as published in The Basic Writings of Josiah Royce:Culture, Philosophy, and Religion edited by John J. McDermott, retrieved from Project Muse.
