From "The Science of Grammar" by Orson Hyde

I read this recently and it made me feel great about my major:

"As [the English] Language has been more highly honoured in our day, by the Supreme Ruler above, than any other, in that he hath chosen it as the most beautifully grand and impressive medium through which his mandates could be conveyed to mortal beings here on earth, can we be justified if we remain in a state of indifference with regard to its beauty, its richness, and its strangth?"
