“Over the triple doorway of the Cathedral of Milan there are three inscriptions spanning the splendid arches.
“Over one is carved a beautiful wreath of roses, and underneath are the words, ‘All that pleases is but for a moment.’
“Over the other is sculptured a cross, and these are the words beneath: ‘All that troubles is but for a moment.’
“But underneath the great central entrance in the main aisle is the inscription, ‘That only is important which is eternal.’” [The Speaker’s Sourcebook compiled by Eleanor L. Doan, (Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1960), p. 96]
