    "New occassions teach new duties; Times makes ancient good uncouth; They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast the truth; Lo, before us gleam her camp-fires! we ourselves must Pilgrims be, Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly through the desperate winter sea, Nor attempt the future's portal with the past's blood-rusted key."

    --James Russel Lowell

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident--that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
    That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
