It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, or so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere through which we look - to affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of the arts.
- Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862, Author, Poet and Abolitionist
It may make a difference to all eternity whether we do right or wrong today.
- James Freeman Clarke
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it's not going to go away.
