Fallen from the tree
Thats to grow the wood,
Thats to make the cradle,
Thats to rock the bairn,
Thats to grow a man,
Thats to lay me.”

“A government deriving its energy from the will of the society, and operating, by the reason of its measures, on the understanding and interest of the society ... is the government for which philosophy has been searching and humanity been fighting from the most remote ages ... which it is the glory of America to have invented, and her unrivalled happiness to possess.”
