"The greatest name will perish from human history, the finest monument crumble into dust,
and the time will come when our places know us no more.
Yet we shall survive in the memories of our friends as long as the remembrance will serve any good purpose, and then our work and thought and influence will mingle with the great ocean of human achievement, and the sum total of that will be something more, something different from what it would have been without us."

The Reverend Augusta Chapin From a talk to the Pioneer Society of Ingham County a Universalist minister, was the second woman ordained by a denomination, an event that took place in 1863.
