    Religious literature has eminent examples, and if we run over our private list of poets, critics, philanthropists and philosophers, we shall find them infected with this dropsy and elephantiasis, which we ought to have tapped.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There are crimes which become innocent and even glorious through their splendor, number and excess.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Should the conflagration climb,
    Run till all the sages know.
    We the great gazebo built,
    They convicted us of guilt;
    Bid me strike a match and blow.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I made a list of things I have
    to remember and a list
    of things I want to forget,
    but I see they are the same list.
    Linda Pastan (b. 1932)

    I esteem it the happiness of this country that its settlers, whilst they were exploring their granted and natural rights and determining the power of the magistrate, were united by personal affection. Members of a church before whose searching covenant all rank was abolished, they stood in awe of each other, as religious men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is our experience that political leaders do not always mean the opposite of what they say.
    Abba Eban (b. 1915)
