    Tara! Home. I’ll go home, and I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day!
    Sidney Howard (1891–1939)

    It is not impossible, of course, after such an administration as Roosevelt’s and after the change in method that I could not but adapt in view of my different way of looking at things, that questions should arise as to whether I should go back on the principles of the Roosevelt administration.... I have a government of limited power under a Constitution, and we have got to work out our problems on the basis of law. Now, if that is reactionary, then I am a reactionary.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Leave me, O Love, which reachest but to dust;
    And thou, my mind, aspire to higher things;
    Grow rich in that which never taketh rust;
    Whatever fades but fading pleasure brings.
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
