    We have nothing to fear from our foes; God keeps a standing army for that service; but we have no ally against our Friends, those ruthless Vandals.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    By the roadside a hideous carrion, quivering
    On a clean bed of pebbly clay,
    Her legs flexed in the air like a courtesan,
    Burning and sweating venomously,
    Calmly exposed its belly, ironic and wan,
    Clamorous with foul ecstasy.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    There will be no greater burden on our generation than to organize the forces of liberty in our time in order to make our quest of a new freedom for America.

    It is often necessary to know how to obey a woman in order sometimes to have the right to command her.
