James A. Garfield Quotes: Men are tending to materialism. Houses, lands, and worldly goods attract their attention, and as a mirage lure them on to death.

Let me urge you to follow Him, not as the Nazarene, the Man of Galilee, the carpenter's son, but as the ever living spiritual person, full of love and compassion, who will stand by you in life and death and eternity.
