    What have Massachusetts and the North sent a few sane representatives to Congress for, of late years?... All their speeches put together and boiled down ... do not match for manly directness and force, and for simple truth, the few casual remarks of crazy John Brown on the floor of the Harper’s Ferry engine-house,—that man whom you are about to hang, to send to the other world, though not to represent you there.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “Moo” may represent an idea, but only the cow knows.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    I rejoice that there are owls.... They represent the stark twilight and unsatisfied thoughts which all have.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
