President George H.W. Bush's Letter of Resignation From the NRA.
Until philosophers are kings, or the kings and princes of this world have the spirit and power of philosophy, and political greatness and wisdom meet in one, and those commoner natures who pursue either to the exclusion of the other are compelled to stand aside, cities will never have rest from their evils — no, nor the human race, as I believe — and then only will this our State have a possibility of life and behold the light of day.-Plato, The Republic, Book V
Historical Queer Poem
But Ruth replied to Naomi:-Adapted from Ruth 1:16-17
Do not ask me to leave you,
or to turn back from you.
Wherever you go, I shall go,
and wherever you stay, I shall stay.
Your people will be my people
and your God my God.
Wherever you die, I shall die
and there I shall be buried.
May the Lord deal with me
be it ever so severely
if even death separates you and me.
