Margaret Mercer

  • Conversation is to works what the flower is to the fruit. A goodly conversation shelters and cherishes the new-born spirit of virtue, as the flower does the fruit from the cold, chill atmosphere, of a heartless world; and the beauty of holiness expanding in conversation, gives rational anticipation of nobleminded principle ripening into the richest fruits of good works.
