Statue of Liberty

Although it has changed into “give me your tired, your poor, your hungry”, the original quote at the base of the statue is “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door”

-from “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus (on pedestal of statue)
