    In Europe the object is to make the most of their land, labour being abundant: here it is to make the most of our labour, land being abundant.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    In Europe art has to a large degree taken the place of religion. In America it seems rather to be science.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Never before since Jamestown and Plymouth Rock has our American civilization been in such danger as now.... [The Nazis] have made it clear that not only do they intend to dominate all life and thought in their own country, but also to enslave the whole of Europe, and then to use the resources of Europe to dominate the rest of the world.
