DAVID EVERETT
American editor and writer
(1769 - 1813)

Tall oaks from little acorns grow.
      - Lines for a School Declamation [Oak]

You'd scarce expect one of my age
  To speak in public on the stage;
    And if I chance to fall below
      Demosthenes or Cicero,
        Don't view me with a critic's eye,
          But pass my imperfections by.
            Large streams from little fountains flow,
              Tall oaks from little acorns grow.
      - Lines for a School Declamation
        [Oratory : Trees]
