„It will be centuries before she will adopt that maturity of custom — the clothing of the grave — that some people believe she is already fitted for.“

Address on accepting The Churchman Award, New York (23 May 1944)
Contexto: America has never forgotten — and never will forget — the nobler things that brought her into being and that light her path — the path that was entered upon only one hundred and fifty years ago … How young she is! It will be centuries before she will adopt that maturity of custom — the clothing of the grave — that some people believe she is already fitted for.
