"God could have made a more beautiful place than Staten Island, but he never did." - George William Curtis

"Staten Island... is one of the sweetest spots on our globe. Travel where he may, the voyager fails to find a place where all the comforts and elegance of life are more profusely concentrated than on this island-suburb of the great metropolis America." - John Overton Choules, The Cruise of the Steam Yacht North Star (New York: Evans & Dickerson; Boston: Gould & Lincoln, 1854), p. 349

Thought for Today by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) From Ancestry Daily News, 12 May 2005
"Whatever you would do, begin it. Boldness has courage, genius and magic in it."
