Founding Fathers Quotes
Besides, to lay and collect internal taxes in this extensive country must require a great number of congressional ordinances,
immediately operation upon the body of the people; these must continually interfere with the state laws and thereby produce
disorder and general dissatisfaction till the one system of laws or the other, operating upon the same subjects, shall be
Federal Farmer, Antifederalist Letter, October 10, 1787
Let not my love be call\'d idolatry,
Nor my beloved as an idol show,
Since all alike my songs and praises be
To one, of one, still such, and ever so.
Kind is my love to-day, to-morrow kind,
Still constant in a wondrous excellence;
Therefore my verse to constancy confin\'d,
One thing expressing, leaves out difference.
\'Fair, kind, and true,\' is all my argument,
\'Fair, kind, and true,\' varying to other words;
And in this change is my invention spent,
Three themes in one, which wondrous scope affords.
Fair, kind, and true, have often liv\'d alone,
Which three till now, never kept seat in one.
Then let not winter\'s ragged hand deface,
In thee thy summer, ere thou be distill\'d:
Make sweet some vial; treasure thou some place
With beauty\'s treasure ere it be self-kill\'d.
That use is not forbidden usury,
Which happies those that pay the willing loan;
That\'s for thy self to breed another thee,
Or ten times happier, be it ten for one;
Ten times thy self were happier than thou art,
If ten of thine ten times refigur\'d thee:
Then what could death do if thou shouldst depart,
Leaving thee living in posterity?
Be not self-will\'d, for thou art much too fair
To be death\'s conquest and make worms thine heir.
Conversation in real life is full of half-finished sentences and
overlapping talk. Why shouldn\'t painting be too?
