  • “We who are members of the Society of Friends have little to fall back on except our experience with truth. We cannot resort to ritual or creed or to ecclesiastical decisions for guidance. We must find our way by seeing the hand of God at work in the weaving of the fabric of everyday life.” – Clarence E. Pickett
