“My Poynz, I cannot frame me tune to fayne,
To cloke the trothe for praisse withowt desart,
Of them that lyst all vice for to retayne.

With Venus and Baccus all theire lyf long;
Nor holld my pece of them allthoo I smart.”

“A President Roosevelt comes only once in a century. I believe God knew and does know of the need of the world at this moment. I dont believe President Roosevelt is an accident in time, or that it is an accident that he is President for a third time. I believe that Franklin D. Roosevelt truly is the voice of liberty in the world.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
