„Wild was the day; the wintry sea
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
Context: 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. 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).
