My people too were scared with eerie sounds, A footstep, a low throbbing in the walls, A noise of falling weights that never fell, Weird whispers, bells that rang without a hand, Door-handles turn'd when none was at the door, And bolted doors that open'd of themselves; And one betwixt the dark and light had seen Her, bending by the cradle of her babe.Alfred Tennyson, The Ring.
God give us men. The time demandsStrong minds, great hearts, true faith, and willing hands;Men whom the lust of office does not kill;Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;Men who possess opinions and a will;Men who have honor; men who will not lie;Men who can stand before a demagogueAnd dam his treacherous flatteries without winking;Tall men, sun-browned, who live above the fogIn public duty and in private thinking.josiah gilbert holland
