Founding Fathers Quotes
As our president bears no resemblance to a king so we shall see the Senate has no similitude to nobles. First, not being
hereditary, their collective knowledge, wisdom, and virtue are not precarious. For by these qualities alone are they to obtain
their offices, and they will have none of the peculiar qualities and vices of those men who possess power merely because their
father held it before them.
Tench Coxe, An American Citizen, No.2, September 28, 1787
Where is all the knowledge we lost with information?
T. S. Eliot
Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one\'s living at
it. --Albert Einstein
Beshrew that heart that makes my heart to groan
For that deep wound it gives my friend and me!
Is\'t not enough to torture me alone,
But slave to slavery my sweet\'st friend must be?
Me from myself thy cruel eye hath taken,
And my next self thou harder hast engross\'d:
Of him, myself, and thee I am forsaken;
A torment thrice three-fold thus to be cross\'d:
Prison my heart in thy steel bosom\'s ward,
But then my friend\'s heart let my poor heart bail;
Whoe\'er keeps me, let my heart be his guard;
Thou canst not then use rigour in my jail:
And yet thou wilt; for I, being pent in thee,
Perforce am thine, and all that is in me.
