-- The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not be
bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men
who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is
as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the
right though the heavens fall.
