About Wilfrid Laurier University

  As for you who stand today on the threshold of life,
with a long horizon open before you for a long career
of usefulness to your native land, if you will permit me, after a long life, I shall remind you that
already many problems rise before you: problems of race division, problems of creed differences, problems of economic conflict, problems of national duty andnational aspiration.
Let me tell you that for the solution of these problems you have a safe guide, an unfailing light if you remember that faith is better than doubt and love is better than hate.
Banish hate and doubt from your life. Let your
souls be ever open to the promptings of faith and
the gentle influence of brotherly love. Be adamant
against the haughty, be gentle and kind to the
weak. Let your aim and purpose, in good report or
ill, in victory or defeat, be so to live, so to strive, so to
serve as to do your part to raise even higher the
standard of life and living...

Wilfrid Laurier
