Theodore Parker (Lexington, Massachusetts, August 24, 1810 – Florence, Italy, May 10, 1860) was an American Transcendentalist and reforming minister of the Unitarian church. A reformer and abolitionist, his words and quotations which he popularized would later inspire speeches by Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr.

We thank thee, also for all the unexpected things that make life happy and bright, and for the common things, like water and light. ~ Theodore Parker Ferris, 1908-1972
