That energy and resourcefulness, not millions of legal cubicles, is what was great about America. Let judgment and personal conviction be important again.

    Men seldom persevere in a vocation unless they believe or can convince themselves that it is fundamentally more important than any other calling. Women are the same with their lovers.

    The discovery of the North Pole is one of those realities which could not be avoided. It is the wages which human perseverance pays itself when it thinks that something is taking too long.

    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)
