    The field of the poor may yield much food, but it is swept away through injustice.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 13:23.

    While the white man keeps the impetus of his own proud, onward march, the dark races will yield and serve, perforce. But let the white man once have a misgiving about his own leadership, and the dark races will at once attack him, to pull him down into the old gulfs.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Yet cease your ire, you angry stars of heaven!
    Wind, rain, and thunder, remember earthly man
    Is but a substance that must yield to you.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
