    It is said that the British Empire is very large and respectable, and that the United States are a first-rate power. We do not believe that a tide rises and falls behind every man which can float the British Empire like a chip, if he should ever harbor it in his mind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Let the space under the first storey be dark, let the water
    lap the stone posts, and vivid green slime glimmer
    upon them; let a boat be kept there.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    How many ages hence
    Shall this our lofty scene be acted over
    In states unborn and accents yet unknown!

    My impression about the Panama Canal is that the great revolution it is going to introduce in the trade of the world is in the trade between the east and the west coast of the United States.

    Those that I guard I do not love.
