The genius of the United States is not best or most in its executives or legislatures, nor in its ambassadors or authors or colleges, or churches, or parlors, nor even in its newspapers or inventors, but always most in the common people. - Walt Whitman
Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another one of them new worlds. No beer, no women, no pool parlors - nothin'. Nothing to do but throw rocks at tin cans and we got to bring our own tin cans.
