    Nothing to be done really about animals. Anything you do looks foolish. The answer isn’t in us. It’s almost as if we’re put here on earth to show how silly they aren’t.

    Our children shall behold his fame,
    The kindly-earnest, brave, forseeing man,
    Sagacious, patient, dreading praise, not blame,
    New birth of our new soil, the first American.
