"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-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
"The New Colossus", a sonnet written in 1883; appears on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty placed in 1903
