Watch an old building with care; guard it as best you may, and at any cost, from any influence of dilapidation. Count its stones as he would jewels of a crown; set watches about it as if the gates of a besieged city; bind it together with irons when it loosens; stay it with timbers when it declines. Do this tenderly, and reverently, and continually, and many a generation will still be born and pass away beneath that shadow.

We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within this inheritance of soul. We are links between the
ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories and future promise.
– Edward Sellner
"O, blackberry tart, with berries as big as your thumb, purple and black, and thick with juice,
and a crust to endear them that will go to cream in your mouth, and both passing down with such a taste that will make you close your eyes and wish you might live for ever in the wideness
of that rich moment."
— Richard Llewellyn (How Green Was My Valley)
