"History says, don't hope on this side of the grave. But then, once in a lifetime the longed for tidal wave of justice can rise up, and hope and history rhyme. So hope for a great sea-change on the far side of revenge. Believe that a further shore is reachable from here. Believe in miracles and cures and healing wells."
- Seamus Heaney's "The Cure at Troy",
"I look forward to a great future for America, a future in which our country will match its
military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our
purpose. . . . And I look forward to an America which commands respect throughout the world not only for its strength but for its civilization as well."- John F. Kennedy, 1963.
