    The mission of men there seems to be, like so many busy demons, to drive the forest all out of the country, from every solitary beaver swamp and mountain-side, as soon as possible.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In comparison to the French Revolution, the American Revolution has come to seem a parochial and rather dull event.

    Irving Kristol (b. 1920)
