    Be composed—be at ease with me—I am Walt Whitman, liberal and lusty
    as Nature,
    Not till the sun excludes you do I exclude you,
    Not till the waters refuse to glisten for you and the leaves to rustle for you, do my words refuse to glisten and rustle for you.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Not only our future economic soundness but the very soundness of our democratic institutions depends on the determination of our government to give employment to idle men.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war. This war talk’s spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream. Besides, there isn’t going to be any war.
