Tonight I Quote From The Glory Section

“It is by what we ourselves have done, and not by what others have done for us, that we shall be remembered by after ages.  It is by  thought that has  aroused the intellect from its slumbers, which has given luster to virtue and dignity to truth, or by those examples which have inflamed the soul with the love of goodness, and not by means of sculptured marble, that I hold communion with Shakespeare and Milton, with Johnson and Burke, with Howard and Wilberforce.” – Francis Wayland
