Side 184 - Our proper business is improvement. Let our age be the age of improvement. In a day of peace, let us advance the arts of peace, and the works of peace.

Side 201 - LORD'S house shall be established as the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow unto it. And many peoples shall go and say: "Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; And He will teach us of His ways, And we will walk in His paths.
Side 239 - Mammon led them on, Mammon, the least erected Spirit that fell From Heaven; for even in Heaven his looks and thoughts Were always downward bent, admiring more The riches of Heaven's pavement, trodden gold, Than aught divine or holy else enjoyed In vision beatific.
Side 183 - Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.

Side 249 - They do me wrong who say I come no more, When once I knock and fail to find you in ; For every day I stand outside your door And bid you wake and rise to fight and win.
Side 110 - Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity swear by the blood of the Revolution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others.
Side 9 - Back of the beating hammer By which the steel is wrought, Back of the workshop's clamor The seeker may find the Thought, The Thought that is ever master Of iron and steam and steel, That rises above disaster And tramples it under heel...
Side 240 - IDEALS ARE LIKE STARS. YOU WILL NOT SUCCEED IN TOUCHING THEM WITH YOUR HANDS, BUT LIKE THE SEA-FARING MAN ON THE DESERT OF WATERS. YOU CHOOSE THEM AS YOUR GUIDES AND FOLLOWING THEM, YOU REACH YOUR DESTINY.
Side 187 - We, here in America, hold in our hands the hope of the world, the fate of the coming years; and shame and disgrace will be ours if in our eyes the light of high resolve is dimmed, if we trail in the dust the golden hopes of men.
