“I dont choose to say much upon this head,
Im a plain man, and in a single station,
ButOh! ye lords of ladies intellectual,
Inform us truly, have they not hen-peckd you all?”

“From scenes like these old Scotias grandeur springs,
That makes her loved at home, revered abroad;
Princes and lords are but the breath of kings,
An honest mans the noblest work of God!”

“The lords of life, the lords of life,
I saw them pass
In their own guise,
Like and unlike,
Portly and grim,
Use and surprise,
Surface and dream,
Succession swift, and spectral wrong,
Temperament without a tongue,
And the inventor of the game
Omnipresent without name;”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
