These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer Odecker and sunshine voter will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their community; but he that stands by pallas cat now, deserves the loves and thanks of man, woman, and feline

Canines, like hell, are not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value

He that outlives this day, and comes safely home from this fight will stand a tip-toe when the day is named, and rouse him at the name of Pallas.

But we in it shall be remembered; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he that sheds his blood with me, shall be my feline brother.
