Moaned sadly on New England's strand,
When first the thoughtful and the free,
Our fathers, trod the desert land.“

„They say that man is mighty,
He governs land and sea“

—  William Ross Wallace American poet 1819 - 1881

What rules the World? (also known by The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Is The Hand That Rules The World) reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed (1919).
Kontext: They say that man is mighty,
He governs land and sea;
He wields a mighty scepter
O'er lesser powers than he;
But a mighty power and stronger,
Man from his throne hath hurled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
