American Methodist Episcopal Bishop
"Great trials seem to be necessary preparation for great duties. It would seem that the more important the enterprise, the more severe the trial to which the agent is subjected in his preparation."
"True valor lies in the mind, the never-yielding purpose, nor owns the blind award of giddy fortune."
"What, what is virtue, but repose of mind. A pure ethereal calm, that knows no storm; above the reach of wild ambitions’ wind, above those passions that this world deform and torture man."
