“Love thou thy land, with love far-brought
From out the pictured past

Tennyson
“A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of re-
mote ancestors, will never achieve anything worthy to be remem-
bered with pride by remote descendants. It is a sentiment which
belongs to the higher and purer part of human nature, and which
adds not a little to the strength of States.”Macaulay's History of
England
