Holding Spirits Pure and High


“We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But, we CAN hold our spirits and our bodies so PURE and HIGH, we may cherish such thoughts and such ideals, and dream such Dreams of lofty Purpose, that we CAN DETERMINE and KNOW what Manner of Men we will be whenever and wherever the hour strikes that calls to noble action... No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought.” (Joshua L. Chamberlain @ the Battle of Gettysburg) 1:01 p.m.
