"True, we build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures... There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state."
~ John W. Davis
