Sir David Brewster (1781-1868). In 1817 this Scottish physicist patented his invention of the kaleidoscope. Brewster founded the science of optical mineralogy, involving light polarization. He was the founder and President of the British Association for the Advancement of Science.

“I shall see Jesus, and that will be grand! … Oh, is it not sad that all are not contented with the beautiful simple plan of salvation – Jesus Christ only - who has done so much for us.”

“Notwithstanding his talents!” That disgusts me: merit for a man to bow his intellect to the Cross! Why, what can the highest intellect on earth do but to bow to God’s Word and God’s mind thankfully?”

“When I find a doctrine plainly stated in the Bible, that is enough, God knows. I can depend on God’s Word. We should not expect in this world to be free from things obscure to us, and beyond our ability to explain” …

“To believe in the Lord Jesus Christ is to live; I trust Him and enjoy His peace.”
