" . . . What would a blind man not give to see this glory and handiwork! And what a sight for indifferent men with two good eyes to sleep through! If there were but one sunrise in every century, no one would miss it; all beds would be empty while people waited out - of - doors to behold the flaming wonder."
author (along with his son Will Oursler) of the novel
Father Flanagan of Boys Town
