Stone Quote No. 1

Posted in Life, Photos, Stone Work tagged , , , at 10:58 pm by stonebankblog

One of the great quotes in the Peace Chapel at the International Peace Garden.

The Peace Chapel at the International Peace Garden is a rather squat, nondescript, small modern building, but it’s worth taking a few minutes to contemplate the great quotes carved into stone slabs along the walls and to enjoy the serenity. Not sure of the type of stone, but it has many fossils, a marvelous veined texture — and, of course, the quotes.

Did you know that the Peace Garden is located conveniently near the Stone Bank? Just checking. This material may be on the test. (We will post some more “Stone Quotes” from time to time.)

Here’s a link to the Peace Garden’s website. It’s one of those places that gets better every year.

  1. FYI: The Rev. Peter Marshall (1902-1949) was a Scottish-born Presbyterian preacher who, among other things, was chaplain of the U.S. Senate. Here’s the url for his website. http://petermarshallministries.com/legacy/dr-peter-marshall/

    And who was Peter Marshall — a silver-haired game show host? No, a Canadian prime minister, says the U.S.-Canada Fulbright Scholar wearing Team Canada PJs to bed tonight.

  3. It IS a great quote if it’s attributed to many — we will find the correct attribution.(Never a dull day at the Stone Bank.)

    It is a great quote and a good representation of the efforts being put forth by the Stone Bank backers….keep up the good work!

    • Thanks, Mark! I was hoping that someone would pick up on the sly “donate” message! So far, no luck. But no matter what, it’s a good life message!

    Hey, if you come up with a winning name, I say go with it. The preacher, the politician, the game-show host, the famous story book character. No wait, I’m thinking of Peter Rabbit. Wonder if he’s related to Eddie Rabbit?

    Anyway, Stone Bank is on my list of Q recipients. Rather than M or W recipients. Yeah, I’m trying to sound sophisticated because I’m not rich. I do wish you all the best, on your birthday and every other day.
