"We are told that teaching is like bread caste upon the water which will return after many days. Thank God I have lived long enough on this earth to taste of some of that bread, and oh how sweet it as been. Many of my former students, of men of honor with families, have come and told me the teaching they received in the Ricks Academy through me had been the turning point in their lives."
---George Cole
