    The President of the United States ... should strive to be always mindful of the fact that he serves his party best who serves his country best.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    To be, contents his natural desire;
    He asks no Angel’s wing, no Seraph’s fire;
    But thinks, admitted to that equal sky,
    His faithful dog shall bear him company.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Curiosity doesn’t matter any more. These days people don’t want to be transported to emotional territories where they don’t know how to react.
    Hector Babenko (b. 1946)

    The Red Cross in its nature, it aims and purposes, and consequently, its methods, is unlike any other organization in the country. It is an organization of physical action, of instantaneous action, at the spur of the moment; it cannot await the ordinary deliberation of organized bodies if it would be of use to suffering humanity, ... [ellipsis in original] it has by its nature a field of its own.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)
