Engrave this Quote Courage must come from the soul within,
The man must furnish the will to win.
So figure it out for yourself, my lad.
You were born with all that the great have had,
With your equipment they all began,
Get hold of yourself and say: I can.

(Recited by Dr. George Washington Carver during his commencement address at Selma University, Selma Alabama on May 27, 1942)
-Edgar A. Guest, from the poem Equipment Tell a Friend
