iamacqui: The plaque on the statue’s pedestal is only objectionable insofar as it contains that third rate Emma Lazarus poem, which makes people believe that a statue dedicated to LIBERTY is actually all about immigration

ViraArmstrong: Emma Lazarus (July 22, 1849 – November 19, 1887) was an American author of poetry, prose, and translations, as well as an activist for Jewish and Georgist causes. She is remembered for writing the sonnet "The New Colossus", which was inspired by the Statue of Liberty, in 1883.

ViraArmstrong: "The New Colossus" is a sonnet by American poet Emma Lazarus (1849–1887). She wrote the poem in 1883 to raise money for the construction of a pedestal for the Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World).

JimGilsinn: In these times of divisive politics and trouble, it is important for us to remember one of the fundamental principles that this country was founded upon. This is "The New Colossus" a sonnet by Emma Lazarus on a plaque at the Statue of Liberty.

VerminusM: Random fact: The Jewish-American poetess Emma Lazarus, best known for writing the poem "The New Colossus" which was later inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, argued for the creation of a Jewish homeland more than a decade before Herzl.

HQGroypcraft88: Our heritage is not Emma Lazarus’ “melting pot” myth. It is not the Hart-Celler Act of 1965. American identity is not an abstraction centered around a set of meaningless principles that anyone can be adopted by anyone. To claim otherwise is un-American.

BenofB: One thing I am absolutely genuinely cringe over is that I 10000% believe in Emma Lazarus’s “New Colossus” and I get genuinely weepy when I read it. I believe in that ideal even if it doesn’t ring true most of the time. I believe it to my marrow.

Hilaire Belloc Poem
The Bison
 by Hilaire Belloc

The Bison is vain, and (I write it with pain)
The Door-mat you see on his head
Is not, as some learned professors maintain,
The opulent growth of a genius- brain;
But is sewn on with needle and thread.
