Syllabled by Silence, let me hear

The still small voice that reached the prophets's ear.

- Whittier.

The thoughtful man needs no armor but this - concentration. * * * * Concentration is the secret of strength in politics, in war, and in all management of human affairs. - Emerson.

The deeper the mind penetrates, the clearer it becomes; the more it spreads itself out on the surface, the more it is confused. * * * * Read less, think more of what you have read. Act toward a difficult task as a brave general who leaves his foe no rest till he has overthrown him. - Confucius.

To Those who during four years of Association Have made every day sunshining through the Affirmation: Heaven Is Mine, Now And Here!
