We must always follow the direction of the Great Spirit and we must listen to Him, as it was He that made us.
We had to have God's help.

He is the Principal; we are his agents. He is the Father, and we are His children. Most good ideas are simple, and this concept was the keystone of the new and triumphant arch through which we passed to freedom.
