    In the United States there is more space where nobody is is than where anybody is.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Our citizenship in the United States is our national character. Our citizenship in any particular state is only our local distinction. By the latter we are known at home, by the former to the world. Our great title is AMERICANS—our inferior one varies with the place.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    It is the duty of the President to propose and it is the privilege of the Congress to dispose.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
