pg. 606 contains the wonderful lesson discovered by Congressman Crockett. The Electioneering Tour will take you on the journey more commonly known today as 'Not Yours to Give' and it is a lesson our congressional representatives should all relearn. In this story you will meet a simple, articulate, hard-working farmer named Horatio Bunce. From the very first time I met Mr. Bunce through this tale told by Davey Crockett I have worked to be more like him. You will read the reason Mr. Bunce told Congressman Crockett he would not earn his vote again. The eye-opening exchange forever altered Crockett's understanding of the authority over the people's purse our Constitution gave him and his peers. Read this story and forever alter your understanding. If you believe our Constitution was a document only lawyers could understand prepare to change your belief. Simplicity never tasted so refined as it did when spoken by Horatio Bunce.

Page 321 - Come back into memory, like as thou wert in the dayspring of thy fancies, with hope like a fiery column before thee — the dark pillar not yet turned — Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Logician, Metaphysician, Bard !

Page 213 - Anthem, and which, like that, gave the feeling of a vast march, of infinite cavalcades filing off, and the tread of innumerable armies. The morning was come of a mighty day — a day of crisis and of final hope for human nature, then suffering some mysterious eclipse, and labouring in some dread extremity.

Page 334 - Oh, yet we trust that somehow good Will be the final goal of ill To pangs of nature, sins of will, Defects of doubt, and taints of blood; That nothing walks with aimless feet; That not one life shall be destroyed, Or cast as rubbish to the void, When God hath made the pile complete...

Page 24 - The whole neighborhood abounds with local tales, haunted spots, and twilight superstitions : stars shoot and meteors glare oftener across the valley than in any other part of the country, and the nightmare, with her whole nine fold, seems to make it the favorite scene of her gambols.

Page 320 - No one's concerns, no one's thoughts, no one's opinions, no one's tastes and pleasures seemed beneath him. He made himself so thoroughly the companion of those with whom he happened to be, that they forgot for a time his vast superiority, and only recollected and wondered, when all was over, that it was Scott with whom they had been on such familiar terms, and in whose society they had felt so perfectly at their ease.
