Pittsburgh, How to See It: A Complete, Reliable Guide Book With Illustrations, the Latest Map and Complete Index (Classic Reprint)
I believe in Pittsburgh the powerful - the progressive. I believe in the past of Pittsburgh and in the future founded on the heritage of that past: of clean living, frugal, industrious men and women of poise, power, purity, genius and courage. I believe that her dominant spirit is, has been, and always will be for uplift and betterment. I believe that my neighbor stands for the same faith in Pittsburgh, altho his expression may vary from mine. I believe in Pittsburgh of the present, and her people - possessing the virtues of all nations - fused thru the melting pot to a greater potency for good. I believe in taking pride in our city, its institutions, its people, its habits.
I believe in the great plans born of initiative, foresight, and civic patriotism in the minds of the great men of to-day: here - now, I believe that the Pittsburgers who truly represent her are those of God fearing lives, scorning ostentation and the seats of the ungodly: building surely, quietly and permanently.
I believe that those who know Pittsburgh love her, 'her rocks and rills, and templed hills.' I believe that Pittsburgh's mighty forces are reproduced in a mighty people, stanch like the hills, - true like steel.
