I never intended to make art.
Walt Disney, when his work was displayed at the Metropolitan
Museum of Art
Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah! do not, when my heart hath \'scap\'d this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquer\'d woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purpos\'d overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite,
But in the onset come: so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune\'s might;
And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
Compar\'d with loss of thee, will not seem so.
Founding Fathers Quotes
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of
the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be
ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be
prepared, so we will always be free.
