Not ... that I can render the point more than a pointbut that I can startle myself ... into wakefulnessand thus transfer the point ... into the realm of Memoryconvey its impressions,... to a situation where ... I can survey them with the eye of analysis.”

“My topic for Army reunions ... this summer: How to prepare for war in time of peace. Not by fortifications, by navies, or by standing armies. But by policies which will add to the happiness and the comfort of all our people and which will tend to the distribution of intelligence [and] wealth equally among all. Our strength is a contented and intelligent community.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
“When Titian was mixing brown madder,
His model was posed up a ladder.
Said Titian, That position
Calls for coition,
So he lept up the ladder and had her.”
