˹ 102 - Enslaved, illogical, elate, He greets th' embarrassed Gods, nor fears To shake the iron hand of Fate Or match with Destiny for beers.
˹ 151 - He smote the rock of the national resources, and abundant streams of revenue gushed forth. He touched the dead corpse of the Public Credit, and it sprung upon its feet...
˹ 132 - And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness : And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited : and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.
˹ 116 - The names of those who love the Lord." "And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so,
˹ 132 - And when .he hath made an end of atoning for the holy place, and the tent of meeting, and the altar, he shall present the live goat : and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, even all their sins ; and he shall put them upon the head of the goat...
˹ 33 - Do the day's work. If it be to protect the rights of the weak, whoever objects, do it. If it be to help a powerful corporation better to serve the people, whatever the opposition, do that.

Don't hesitate to be as reactionary as the multiplication table. Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.
˹ 213 - tis a little thing, Dropped in the heart's deep well ; The good, the joy, that it may bring, Eternity shall tell.
˹ 6 - ... forget that the comparatively small number of persons, numerous as they seem to be when they swarm, who come to Washington to ask for things, do not constitute an important proportion of the population of the country, that it is constantly necessary to come away from Washington and renew one's contact with the people who do not swarm there, who do not ask for anything, but who do trust you without their personal counsel to do your duty.

˹ 213 - A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
˹ 91 - Every effort shall be exercised to humanize the industry. Labor is not a commodity. That idea was abandoned 1,921 years ago next Easter. There are 300,000 employees. They have the brain and they have the hand to do the job well; and they shall have the heart to do it well. We purpose to approach this matter so that they shall be partners with us in this business.
