• The education that you give to the upper classes will not uproot idolatry and prejudice, for it is amongst the masses that the error and prejudice will always maintain their power, and while you do not uproot those prejudices from the hearts of the masses, a handful of educated Hindus will never be able successfully to reform the country.

    Speech delivered at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington Butts, London, May 24, 1870.
