and to the quarry from which you were digged.

MUCH to explore and consider within this site...
"Society is an open-ended partnership between
generations. The dead and the unborn are as much members of
society as the living. To dishonor the dead is to reject the
relation on which society is built - a relation of obligation between
generations. Those who have lost respect for the dead have ceased
to be trustees of their inheritance. Inevitably, therefore, they
lose the sense of obligation to future generations. The web of
obligations shrinks to the present tense."
Edmund Burke speaking in the 1780's

"Yet without fantasia, the past remains dead.
To bring it to life, we need, at least ideally, to hear men's voices. . .
to conjecture, on the basis of such evidence as we can gather, what may
have been their experience, their forms of expression, their values,
outlook, themes, ways of living. Without this, we cannot grasp
whence we came, how we came to be as we are now. Not merely
physically or biologically, and, in a narrow sense, politically and
institutionally, but socially, psychologically, morally. Without
this, there can be no genuine self-understanding. We call great
historians not those who only are in full control of the factual evidence
obtained by the use of the best critical methods available to them, but
also possess the depths of imaginative insight that characterizes gifted
novelists, and that is what we call the muse."

I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies
of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and
their loyalty to high ideals." William Gladstone
