    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    This ferry was as busy as a beaver dam, and all the world seemed anxious to get across the Merrimack River at this particular point, waiting to get set over,—children with their two cents done up in paper, jail-birds broke lose and constable with warrant, travelers from distant lands to distant lands, men and women to whom the Merrimack River was a bar.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Mortality: not acquittal but a series of postponements is what we hope for.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
