    —For the State of Illinois, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Anyone with any real blood in his or her ... veins cannot help being a fan ....Being a true American and being a fan are synonymous.
    Lulu Glaser (1874–1958)

    Already nature is serving all those uses which science slowly derives on a much higher and grander scale to him that will be served by her. When the sunshine falls on the path of the poet, he enjoys all those pure benefits and pleasures which the arts slowly and partially realize from age to age. The winds which fan his cheek waft him the sum of that profit and happiness which their lagging inventions supply.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
