A Quote by Daniel Webster on eternity, fear, god, justice, love, men, principles, time, and work

If we work upon marble, it will perish; If we work upon brass, time will efface it; If we rear temples, they will crumble to dust; But if we work upon men's immoral minds And imbue them with high principles, With the just fear of God and love of their fellow man; We engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, And which will brighten and brighten to all eternity.
