THE world's history is a divine poem, of which the history of every nation is a canto and every man is a word.
Its strains have been pealing along down the centuries, and, though there have been mingled the discords of warring cannon and dying men, yet to the Christian philosopher and historian - the humble listener - there has been a divine melody running through the song which speaks of hope and halcyon days to come
- JAMES A. GARFIELD
