“….human love is a holy thing, the holiest in our experience…..love, created by time and experience….invincible against the disillusionments of the years. I had always found it difficult to understand the readiness with which some middle-aged couples divorced each other, and thereby cast away the accumulated treasures of their past.”

(From ‘Testament of Experience’ by Vera Brittain, 1893 – 1970)

“Almighty God, who has given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord and confusion, from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.”
