C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • A weapon that comes down as still
  • As snow-flakes fall upon the sod;
  • But executes a freeman’s will,
  • As lightning does the will of God;
  • And from its force, nor doors nor locks
  • Can shield you ’tis the ballot-box.
  • J. Pierpont.
