    Love, all alike, no season knows, nor clime,
    Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    The junior senator from Wisconsin, by his reckless charges, has so preyed upon the fears and hatreds and prejudices of the American people that he has started a prairie fire which neither he nor anyone else may be able to control.
    J. William Fulbright (b. 1905)
