- Let these columns stand. Let them stand a thousand years. Crown them with an arch, memorial to the men who in their magnificent presence learned what life and duty are, and how to live the one and do the other.

No university can be most attractive and great till age has brought it this support. No argument persuades like sentiment, and no force impels like affection.
