    "They waste us-ay-like April snow
    In the warm noon, we shrink away;
    And fast they follow, as we go
    Towards the setting day-
    Till they shall fill the land, and we
    Are driven into the Western sea."

    - William Cullen Bryant "An Indian at the Burial Place of his Fathers"

    "These states are the amplest poem,
    Here is not merely a nation but a teeming Nation of nations,
    Here the doings of men correspond with the broadcast doings
    of the day and night,
    Here is what moves in magnificent masses careless of particulars,
    ...Here the flowing trains, here the crowds, equality, diversity, the soul loves."

    - Walt Whitman Passage form "By Blue Ontario Shore" Leaves of Grass

    The Eagle Has Landed

    Neil Armstrong: "Houston, Tranquillity Base, here. The Eagle has landed."

    Neil Armstrong: I'm at the foot of the ladder...I'm going to step off...now. That's one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind."

    "Now we are engaged in a great civil war. . .testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated. . . can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war."
    - Abraham Lincoln
    Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863

    "We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this."
    - Abraham Lincoln
    Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863

    "But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate. . .we cannot consecrate. . . we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here."
    - Abraham Lincoln
    Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863

    "It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us. . .that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. . . that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. . . that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . . shall not perish from this earth."
    - Abraham Lincoln
    Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863
