PAUL HARRIS:

 

The lawlessness of the frontier life in America had been pictured as a remarkable phenomenon. In reality, it was the natural consequence if indiscriminate mixing of volatile substances.

 

The less one knows, the more he thinks he knows, and the more willing he is to employ any and all measures to enforce his views upon others.

 

The nation that is supreme above all others during one age, will be eclipsed by another in the next age.

 

 

LULU ISLAND MOMENT:

 

So we live on an island surrounded by water. In 1895 there was no fresh water on the islands. The Municipal Council of the day authorized a contractor to bore for fresh water to a depth of 1500 feet to find Artesian Water. By October 5 of that year they bored to a depth of 1008 feet with no result. The project was then abandoned. They still had to bring fresh drinking water in barrels.

 

NOTE!

We are still looking for contributions from others!
