James Russell Lowell | American poet and critic | Britannica

They are slaves who fear to speak for the fallen and the weak.”   —   J.R. Lowell

(Great way of sneaking Lowell back in so soon!  Our media seems to fear to speak for the fallen and the weak.  But, of course, their corporate masters keep them on a short leash.  Some subjects they virtually refuse to bring up/cover.  And, when they do mention the weak it seems they always have to sully them a bit.  I guess they always want to give “the authority” a little window of . . . justification for their abuses.  Speak out, friends!  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Let us be of good cheer, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come.”   —   James Russell Lowell

Fortunes made in no time are like shirts made in no time; it’s ten-to-one if they hang long together.”   —   James Russell Lowell
