Title
"I believe that man will not merely endure he will prevail. He is immortal not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance."--William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, Stockholm, December 1950. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
