Occident: The part of the world lying west (or east) of the Orient. It is largely inhabited by Christians, a powerful subtribe of the Hypocrites, whose principal industries are murder and cheating, which they are pleased to call 'war' and 'commerce.' These, also, are the principal industries of the Orient.
~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary

Adlai Stevenson
In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.
~Thurogood Marshall
