Robert Burns
Scotland's most famous poet

"NO Spartan tube, no Attic shell

Thy harp, Columbia, let me take
We dare maintain the royalty of man"
From Burns' Ode to

increases the happiness of others,
this is my criterion of goodness.
Whatever injures society at large

this is my measure of iniquity."
