"Splendid as was the mighty achievement of Greece, she never reached the majesty and grandeur of that masterpiece of sculpture that stands on the edge of Africa, head and shoulders above her achievement in the wonderous thing called the Sphinx.
The genius of Egypt spent itself upon the majesty and mystery of life and it moved thereby to a higher achievement. -Haldam Macfall"
Dedication, "An Epitome of History", 1923, Mary Louise McLaughlin, The Stratford Company
