Salutes to America

Liberty is not a matter of words, but a positive and important condition of society.  James Fenimore Cooper

Liberty does not consist, my fellow citizens, in mere declarations of the rights of man.  It consists in the translation of those declarations into definite action. Woodrow Wilson

Liberty, according to my metaphysics...is a self-determining power in an intellectual agent.  It implies thought and choice and power.  John Adams.

When a great ship cuts through the sea, the waters are always stirred and troubled.  And our ship is moving -- moving through troubled waters, Toward new and better shores.  Lyndon B. Johnson.

The welfare of America is closely bound up with the welfare of mankind.  Marquis de Lafayette

Your Name

You got it from your father
t'was the best he had to give,
And right gladly he bestowed it
It's yours, the while you live.

You may lose the watch he gave you
and another you may claim,
But remember, when you're tempted,
to be careful of his name.

It was fair the day you got it,
and a worthy name to bear,
When he took it from his father
there was no dishonor there.

Through the years he proudly wore it,
to his father he was true,
And that name was clean and spotless
when he passed it on to you.

Oh there's much that he has given
that he values not at all,
He has watched you break your playthings
in the days when you were small.

You have lost the knife he gave you
and you've scattered many a game,
But you'll never hurt your father
if you're careful with his name.

It is yours to wear forever,
yours to wear the while you live,
Yours, perhaps some distant morn,
another boy to give.

And you'll smile as did your father,
with a smile that all can share,
If a clean name and a good name
you are giving him to wear.
