“You are indeed the heirs of a remarkable legacy~a legacy that has passed into your hands after no little tumult and travail; a legacy that is the happy result of sacrificial human relations, no less than of stupendous human achievements; a legacy that demands of you a lifetime of vigilance and diligence so that you may in turn pass the fruits of Christian civilization on to succeeding generations. This is the essence of the biblical view, the covenental view, and the classical view of education. This is the great legacy of truth which you are now the chief beneficiaries.”~Arthur Quiller-Couch
“And she vastly preferred writing a letter and walking with it to the post to using the telephone and hearing with horror her voice committing itself to things she would never have dreamed of doing if she’d had the time to think.”~Elizabeth Goudge, The Herb of Grace
“A man’s pocketbook is the last piece of him to be converted.”~Martin Luther
