“What cannot stand must fall; and the measure of our sincerity and therefore of the respect of men, is the amount of health and wealth we will hazard in the defence of our right. An old farmer, my neighbor across the fence, when I ask him if he is not going to town-meeting, says: No, t is no use balloting, for it will not stay; but what you do with the gun will stay so.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
