James Webb Quotes: In Such A Wild Uncharted Place The Book

In Such A Wild, Uncharted Place The Book Of God Was Vital, For It Nourished Their Spirit And Laid Boundaries For Their Conduct. Other Subjects Simply Had No Relevance. Trigonometry And Calculus Would Not Help Them Find Their Way Among The Mountain Trails. Adam Smith's Economics Were Of No Consequence In The Matter Of Planting Corn And Breeding Cattle. Nor Did They Need The Essays Of Plato Or The Plays Of Shakespeare To Teach Them How To Shoot A Rifle, Or To Make Clothes From Animal Skins, Or To Clear Away The Wilderness With Their Own Bare Hands.
