As Arthur Quiller- Couch
(Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944): Cornishman, man of letters, writer of novels and books for children, poet and anthologist, academic, lecturer, founding father of the School of English (sc. the Faculty) at Cambridge)
“You are indeed the heirs of a remarkable legacy--a legacy that has passed into your hands after no little tumult and travail; a legacy that is the happy result of sacrificial human relations, no less than of stupendous human achievements; a legacy that demands of you a lifetime of vigilance and diligence so that you may in turn pass the fruits of Christian civilization on to succeeding generations. This is the essence of the biblical view and covenantal view of education."
