    The strongest bond of human sympathy, outside of the family relation, should be one uniting all working people, of all nations, and tongues, and kindreds.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    The bright old day now dawns again; the cry runs through the the land,
    In England there shall be dear bread—in Ireland, sword and brand;
    And poverty, and ignorance, shall swell the rich and grand,
    So, rally round the rulers with the gentle iron hand,
    Of the fine old English Tory days;
    Hail to the coming time!
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    You whig emblem, you woman chaser,
    why do you dance over the wide lawn tonight
    clanging the garbage pail like great silver bells?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
