    When a man gives himself up to the government of a ruling passion,—or, in other words, when his HOBBY-HORSE grows head- strong,—farewell cool reason and fair discretion.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Only the history of free peoples is worth our attention; the history of men under a despotism is merely a collection of anecdotes.
    —S├ębastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)

    We are the only class in history that has been left to fight its battles alone, unaided by the ruling powers. White labor and the freed black men had their champions, but where are ours?
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    There is no passion more dominant and instinctive in the human spirit than the need of the country to which one belongs.... The time comes when nothing in the world is so important as a breath of one’s own particular climate. If it were one’s last penny it would be used for that return passage.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
