    We are the sons and daughters of the world they saved. [Now is our moment] to make common cause with other countries to ensure a world of peace and prosperity for yet another generation.

    —Administration in the State of Arka, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Oh, God will save her, fear you not:
    Be you the men you’ve been,
    Get you the sons your fathers got,
    And God will save the Queen.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
