George Matthew Adams (专栏作家)


“It’s what each of us sows, and how, that gives us character and prestige. Seeds of kindness, goodwill, and human understanding, planted in fertile soil, spring up into deathless friendships, big deeds of worth, and a memory that will not soon fade out. We are all sowers of seeds – and let us never forget it!”

— George Matthew Adams, Columnist
