QUOTATION:When God made the oyster, he guaranteed his absolute economic and social security. He built the oyster a house, his shell, to shelter and protect him from his enemies…. But when God made the Eagle, He declared, “The blue sky is the limit—build your own house!”…. The Eagle, not the oyster, is the emblem of America.
