    There are many events in the womb of time which will be delivered.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    “Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
    “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I ca’n’t take more.”
    “You mean you ca’n’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    When the course of events shall have removed you to distant scenes of action where laurels not nurtured with the blood of my country may be gathered, I shall urge sincere prayers for your obtaining every honor and preferment which may gladden the heart of a soldier.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
