" It avails not, neither time or place-distance avails not; I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so many generations hence. Just as you feel when you look on the river and sky, so I felt;   Just as any of you is one of a living crowd, I was one of a crowd;  Just as you are refresh'd by the gladness of the river and the bright flow, I was refresh'd."

-Walt Whitman, "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry"
