When the heart is full the tongue will speak
Twelve highlanders and a bagpipe make a rebellion.
Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead.
They talk of my drinking but never my thirst
What may be done at any time will be done at no time
Literature boils with the madcap careers of writers brought to the edge by the demands of living on their nerves, wringing out their memories and their nightmares to extract meaning, truth, beauty.
The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.
(August 21, 1762 - July 04, 1826)
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
