Buren, Abigail Van
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.
Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
