Samuel Madden
Words are menís daughters, but Godís sons are things.
Madden quotes
Some write their wrongs in marble: he more just,
Stoopíd down serene and wrote them in the dust,ó
Trod under foot, the sport of every wind,
Swept from the earth and blotted from his mind.
There, secret in the grave, he bade them lie,
And grieved they could not íscape the Almighty eye.
In an orchard there should be enough to eat, enough to lay up, enough to be stolen, and enough to rot on the ground.
