A Quote by Theodore Parker on achievement, army, bravery, duty, home, justice, mankind, schools, skill, strength, victory, welfare, and world

Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, in the market, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front rank of some great battle, and knew that victory for mankind depended on our bravery, strength, and skill. When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world.
