The Wisdom of Harrell Beck

Governor Talmadge


Governor Talmadge* (whose not very good portrait hangs over the entrance) used to say in early days that he noticed when people in Georgia retire, they often go to live in Florida -- thus raising the I.Q. in both states.  That wasn’t very nice, was it? But I tell you, we live in a society that doesn’t have respect for learning out there -- and it doesn’t have a lot of respect for learning in the church. We’re in real trouble.
