Vannevar Bush is a great name for playing six degrees of separation. Turn back the clock on any aspect of information technology from the birth of Silicon Valley and the marriage of science and the military to the advent of the World Wide Web and you find his footprints. As historian Michael Sherry says, "To understand the world of Bill Gates and Bill Clinton, start with understanding Vannevar Bush."
From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast, Through Gates of pearl streams in the countless host, Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!William Walsham How

O Christians! are you willing to walk the streets of heaven, and have no one greet you there? Would you be willing to go yourselves inside the Gates and never have a soul to greet you and say, " I thank God for the kind words of sympathy and love you spoke on earth?"
And once again the scene was chang’d,New earth there seem’d to be,I saw the Holy CityBeside the tideless sea;The light of God was on its streets,The Gates were open wide,And all who would might enter,And no one was denied.No need of moon or stars by night,Or sun to shine by day,It was the new Jerusalem,That would not pass away.fred weatherly
Two diverse Gates there are of bodiless dreams, These of sawn ivory, and those of horn. Such dreams as issue where the ivory gleams Fly without fate, and turn our hopes to scorn. But dreams which issue through the burnished horn, What man soe'er beholds them on his bed, These work with virtue and of truth are born.homer

The sportive hopes that used to chase their shifting shadows on,Like children playing in the sun, are gone—for ever gone;And on a careless, sullen peace, my double-fronted mind,Like Janus, when his Gates are shut, looks forward and behind.Apollo placed his harp, of old, awhile upon a stone,Which has resounded since, when struck, a breaking harp string's tone;And thus my heart, though wholly now from early softness free,If touch'd, will yield the music yet, it first received of thee.edward coote pinkney

He kept no Christmas-house for once a yeere, Each day his boards were fild with Lordly fare: He fed a rout of yeoman with his cheer, Nor was his bread and beefe kept in with care; His wine and beere to strangers were not spare, And yet beside to all that hunger greved, His Gates were ope, and they were there relived.Robert Greene
