Quote of the Day (Booker T. Washington, on the Power of a ‘High, Pure’ Life)

“There is no power on earth,  that can neutralize the influence of a high, pure, simple and useful life.”—African-American educator, author and orator Booker T. Washington (1856-1915), "The Virtue of Simplicity," from Character Building: Being Addresses Delivered on Sunday Evenings to the Students of Tuskegee Institute (1902)
