From Evangeline by Longfellow

Alike were they free from
Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics.
Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows;
But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of the owners;
There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance.

I was just checking my blog which I haven't done for a long time and I noticed that you commented that you thought you knew me from somewhere. I'm drawing a blank, but it's going to bother me until I figure out who you are. Anyway, I think you have a really interesting blog.
