"Sympathy: Two hearts tugging at one load."
-Charles H. Parkhurst
"A happy marriage is..."
"A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers."
"Conditions may, and are not unlikely to arise..."
"Conditions may, and are not unlikely to arise, some day, when the exercise of the
power to impeach and remove the President may be quite as essential to the preservation of our political system as it threatened to become in this instance destructive of that system.

-Edmund Gibson Ross
"To be yourself in a world that is doing its best..."

everybody else - is to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
"We are all imperfect..."
"We are all imperfect. We can not expect perfect government."
-William Howard Taft
