    The United States themselves are essentially the greatest poem.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    [The boss] asked me if I was not interested in a change in my life. I answered that one can never change lives, that in any case all lives were the same, and that I was not at all unhappy with mine.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The great King of kings
    Hath in the table of his law commanded
    That thou shalt do no murder. Will you then
    Spurn at his edict, and fulfill a man’s?
    Take heed; for he holds vengeance in his hand
    To hurl upon their heads that break his law.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Why doesn’t the United States take over the monarchy and unite with England? England does have important assets. Naturally the longer you wait, the more they will dwindle. At least you could use it for a summer resort instead of Maine.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    The traveler to the United States will do well ... to prepare himself for the class-consciousness of the natives. This differs from the already familiar English version in being more extreme and based more firmly on the conviction that the class to which the speaker belongs is inherently superior to all others.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
