Let's not be narrow, nasty, and negative.
T. S. EliotA false enchantment can all too easily last a lifetime.
W. H. Auden
Founding Fathers Quotes
But the safety of the people of America against dangers from foreign force depends not only on their forbearing to give just
causes of war to other nations, but also on their placing and continuing themselves in such a situation as not to invite
hostility or insult; for it need not be observed that there are pretended as well as just causes of war.
John Jay, Federalist No. 4
But be contented: when that fell arrest
Without all bail shall carry me away,
My life hath in this line some interest,
Which for memorial still with thee shall stay.
When thou reviewest this, thou dost review
The very part was consecrate to thee:
The earth can have but earth, which is his due;
My spirit is thine, the better part of me:
So then thou hast but lost the dregs of life,
The prey of worms, my body being dead;
The coward conquest of a wretch's knife,
Too base of thee to be remembered,.
The worth of that is that which it contains,
And that is this, and this with thee remains.
