    If what you mean by the word “matter” be only the unknown support of unknown qualities, it is no matter whether there is such a thing or no, since it no way concerns us; and I do not see the advantage there is in disputing about what we know not what, and we know not why.

    Oh, little brown girl, born for sorrow’s mate,
    Keep all you have of queenliness,
    Forgetting that you once were slave,
    And let your full lips laugh at Fate!
