Excerpt from In Memory of Thomas Ebenezer Thoma: Delivered Sunday, March 14, 1875, in the First Presbyterian Church, Dayton, Ohio
And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and Barak, and Samson, and Jephthah; David also, and Samuel, and the prophets; who, through faith, subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to ﬂight the armies of the aliens. - Hebrews Xi. 32 - 34.
Chosen to pronounce a commemorative address over those whose valor had made them victims in the first Peloponnesian war, and around whose public tomb the cypress had begun to wave, Pericles thus spoke to the assembled Athenians: I deem it sufficient for men Who have approved their virtue in action, by ao tion to be honored for it. Difficult it is judiciously to handle a subject where even probable truth may not gain assent in the minds of those who, through envy of deeds which are beyond their own. Achievement, pronounce all that is spoken to be exaggeration and false. For the praises bestowed upon men are only to be endured when others imagine they can do, themselves, those feats they hear to haw already been done.
