Yes, Mr. Pyle, but...

“After all, it is the result of my words that will tell, and not the words themselves. If I may help and inspire young artists with an exalted idea of their mission, and if an improvement of their work is the result, then I shall have served my mission, and it will not matter in the least whether my words are recorded or not recorded.”
Howard Pyle to Marie-Marguerite Frechette, February 2, 1905.

Yes, I wish his words were recorded for the sake of those of us who weren't there to hear him in person.
