The wonders of the Grand Canyon cannot be adequately represented in symbols of speech, nor by speech itself. The resources of the graphic art are taxed beyond their powers in attempting to portray its features. Language and illustration combined must fail.
~ John Wesley Powell (March 24, 1834 - September 23, 1902)

We placed the wreaths upon the splendid granite sarcophagus, and at its feet, and felt that only the earthly robe we loved so much was there. The pure, tender, loving spirit which loved us so tenderly, is above us, loving us, praying for us, and free from all suffering and woe, yes, that is a comfort, and that first birthday in another world must have been a far brighter one than any in this poor world below!
~ Queen Victoria (May 24, 1819 - January 22, 1901)
