1 Thessalonians 1:7-10
So that you were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.…
No true and permanent fame can be founded except in labours which promote the happiness of mankind. The highest greatness surviving time and stone is that which proceeds from the soul of man. Monarchs and cabinets, generals and admirals, with the pomp of courts and the circumstances of war, in the lapse of time disappear from sight; but the pioneers of truth, though poor and lowly, especially those whose example elevates human nature, and teaches the rights of man, so that "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, may not perish from the earth"; such a harbinger can never be forgotten, and their renown spreads coextensive with the cause they served so well.
