“These, and such as these, must be our antiquities, for lack of human vestiges. The monuments of heroes and the temples of the gods which may once have stood on the banks of this river are now, at any rate, returned to dust and primitive soil.

—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“But the old world was restored and we returned

Of rich and poor. Our victory was our defeat.”

—Belva Lockwood (18301917)
