"John Jr. - we hardly knew you, too"
The snow may never slush upon the hillside
by nine pm the moonlight must appear.
In short, there's simply not a more congenial spot
for happy ever-aftering than here in "Camelot".
The Sea "I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea--whether it is to sail or to watch it--we are going back from whence we came."

"When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power
narrows the areas of man's concerns, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his
existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths
which must serve as the touchstone of our judgment."
-John F. Kennedy, Speech, Amherst College, Massachusetts, October 26, 1963
