Democracy gives every man the right to be his own oppressor.

James Russell Lowell

(February 22, 1819 – August 12, 1891)
American Romantic poet, critic, editor, and diplomat. He is associated with the Fireside Poets, a group of New England writers who were among the first American poets who rivaled the popularity of British poets. These poets usually used conventional forms and meters in their poetry, making them suitable for families entertaining at their fireside.
