“A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
“Dear common flower, that growst beside the way,
Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
First pledge of blithesome May,
Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
Hight-hearted buccaneers, oerjoyed that they
An Eldorado in the grass have found,
Which not the rich earths ample round
May match in wealththou art more dear to me
Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.”
—James Russell Lowell (18191891)
