|Excerpt from Collections of the Nova Scotia Historical Society, Vol. 20
"The care which a nation devotes to the preservation of the monuments of its past may serve as a true measure of the degree of civilization to which it has attained," (Les Archives Principales de Moscou du Ministere des Affaires Etrangeres Moscow 1898, p.8).
"To discover and rescue from the unsparing hand of time the records which yet remain of the earliest history of Canada. To preserve while in our power, such documents as may be found amid the dust of yet unexplored depositories and which may prove important to general history, and to the particular history of this province." - Quebec Literary and Historical Society.
Count not the cost of honour to the dead!
The tribute that a mighty nation pays
To those who loved her well in former days,
Means more than gratitude for glory fled,
For every noble man that she hath bred,
Immortalized by art's immortal praise,
Lives in the bronze and marble that we raise,
To lead our sons as he our fathers led.
These monuments of manhood, brave and high,
Do more than forts or battle-ships to keep
Our dear bought liberty. They fortify
The heart of youth with valour wise and deep,
They build eternal bulwarks, and command
Eternal strength to guard our native land.
- Henry Van Dyke.
