"I have heard higher sentiments from the lips of the poor uneducated men and women, when exerting the spirit of severe yet gentle heroism under difficulties and afflictions, or speaking their simple thoughts as to circumstances in the lot of friends and neighbors, than I ever met with outside of the pages of the Bible. My firm conviction is that they have the advantage of never being separated from tradition by the fopperies of fashion." Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)
