If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote, where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth remov'd from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land,
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But, ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought,
I must attend, time's leisure with my moan;
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.
Founding Fathers Quotes
Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally
employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal
operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other
relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to
all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the
internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state.
Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when
we created them. --Albert EinsteinThe less a man thinks or knows about his virtues, the better we like him. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
