6. Second Bench
In the beginning of change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
Mark Twain Notebook 1935

This inscription is enigmatic to me in that Mark Twain died in 1910. I have found the quotation dated 1904 elsewhere.

8. Around The Curb
The tumult and the shouting dies--
The Captains and the Kings depart--
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!
Rudyard Kipling 1897
