[List is incomplete.]
Our problems and opportunities have multiplied together, as the world has come to us by way of the railroad, the road, the radio, and the telephone.
We are struck … with the similarity of the times —1913 and 1941. Now, as then, we are on the verge of entering into a European war.
Here at Pine Mountain, the great difference between 1915 and 1941 is that we are no longer apart and protected from the main current of the industrial revolution.
…[F]or us this chapel is the symbol of those things
That do not change — that are eternal,
Often we shall return to it in spirit
Remembering friendships, wise counsel, gentle correction
And five happy years spent in Pine Mountain
1936-37; 1937-38; 1939-40; 1940-41.
We leave you with open doors such as we entered.
We leave this gift as a token of our appreciation.

Mr. [Glyn] Morris, Friends!
We take with up these diplomas, but we will take far more —
Respect for the dignity of work, for the rights of others,
For the worship of God —
The Spirit of Pine Mountain.
