    And the wealth of its soil has borne many another fruit:
    A mairie, a school and an elegant Salle de Fetes.
    Such blessings, as I remarked, in effect, to the waiter,
    Are added unto them that have plenty of water.
    Norman Cameron (b. 1905)

    You men have proved that PT boats have some value in this war. Washington wants you back in the States to build them up. Those are my orders.

    It is not their bones or hide or tallow that I love most. It is the living spirit of the tree, not its spirit of turpentine, with which I sympathize, and which heals my cuts. It is as immortal as I am, and perchance will go to as high a heaven, there to tower above me still.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
