Some say thy fault is youth, some wantonness;
Some say thy grace is youth and gentle sport;
Both grace and faults are lov\'d of more and less:
Thou mak\'st faults graces that to thee resort.
As on the finger of a throned queen
The basest jewel will be well esteem\'d,
So are those errors that in thee are seen
To truths translated, and for true things deem\'d.
How many lambs might the stern wolf betray,
If like a lamb he could his looks translate!
How many gazers mightst thou lead away,
if thou wouldst use the strength of all thy state!
But do not so; I love thee in such sort,
As, thou being mine, mine is thy good report.
The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there\'s no
risk of accident for someone who\'s dead.
My contribution to the world is my ability to draw. I will draw as
much as I can for as many people as I can for as long as I can. Drawing is
still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings
together man and the world. It lives through magic.
Founding Fathers Quotes
All good men wish the entire abolition of slavery, as soon as it can take place with safety to the public, and for the lasting
good of the present wretched race of slaves. The only possible step that could be taken towards it by the convention was to

Oliver Ellsworth, The Landholder, December 10, 1787
