T. S. Eliot
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.
Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.

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
