1. "Give me your tired, your poor, 
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, 
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. 
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, 
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

  4. It is supposed to be true that those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it. I don’t believe knowing can save us. What is constant in history is greed and foolishness and a love of blood and that is a thing that even God—who knows all that can be known—seems powerless to change.
