It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, Always do what you are afraid to do. -- Ralph Waldo
Founding Fathers Quotes
A good government implies two things; first, fidelity to the objects of the government; secondly, a knowledge of the means, by
which those objects can be best attained.
Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
O! call not me to justify the wrong
That thy unkindness lays upon my heart;
Wound me not with thine eye, but with thy tongue:
Use power with power, and slay me not by art,
Tell me thou lov'st elsewhere; but in my sight,
Dear heart, forbear to glance thine eye aside:
What need'st thou wound with cunning, when thy might
Is more than my o'erpress'd defence can bide?
Let me excuse thee: ah! my love well knows
Her pretty looks have been mine enemies;
And therefore from my face she turns my foes,
That they elsewhere might dart their injuries:
Yet do not so; but since I am near slain,
Kill me outright with looks, and rid my pain.
People do not make wars; governments do.
