lean not to thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy
paths.” His personal motto is taken from Colossians 3:23, “And whatsoever ye do, do it
heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward
of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
