Quote of the Day

“My experience of men has neither disposed me to think worse of them; nor indisposed me to serve them; nor in spite of failures, which I lament, of errors, which I  now see and acknowledge, or of the present state of affairs, do I despair of the future.  The march of Providence is so slow, and our desires so impatient, the work of progress is so immense, and our means of aiding it so feeble, the life of humanity is so long, and that of the individual so brief, that we often see only the ebb of the advancing wave, and are thus discouraged.  It is history that reaches us to hope.”

General Robert E. Lee – shortly before he passed.
