When We Build

When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for the present delight nor the present use alone. Let it be such work as our decendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.”
