Madrigal quotes Adam Gopnik who wrote -- "Their phrases still ring because they were struck on bells cast of solid bronze, not chimes set blowing in the breeze."
"If we do celebrate February the 12th as something special, it should be for this hope: "People's minds and hearts can be altered by the slow crawl of fact as much as by the long reach of revelation." All times have probably required some version of appealing to people's "better angels." Let this be ours," says Madrigal.
