A Quote by Robinson Jeffers on robinson jeffers, mortality, republic, life, and decay

You making haste on decay: not blameworthy; life is good, be it
long or suddenly
A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mountains:
shine, perishing republic.

Robinson Jeffers (1887 - 1962)

A Quote by Ron Paul on republic, monarchy, and democracy

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powell anxiously awaited the results, and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished, she asked him directly: "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"
Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
