Founding Fathers Quotes
A feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution;
and a government ill executed, whatever may be its theory, must, in practice, be a bad government.
Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
Mine eye and heart are at a mortal war,
How to divide the conquest of thy sight;
Mine eye my heart thy picture\'s sight would bar,
My heart mine eye the freedom of that right.
My heart doth plead that thou in him dost lie,--
A closet never pierc\'d with crystal eyes--
But the defendant doth that plea deny,
And says in him thy fair appearance lies.
To side this title is impannelled
A quest of thoughts, all tenants to the heart;
And by their verdict is determined
The clear eye\'s moiety, and the dear heart\'s part:
As thus; mine eye\'s due is thy outward part,
And my heart\'s right, thy inward love of heart.
The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
T. S. Eliot
