American Civil

Famous quotes containing the words civil and/or american:

    When civil fury first grew high,
    And men fell out, they knew not why;
    When hard words, jealousies, and fears,
    Set folks together by the ears,
    And made them fight, like mad or drunk,
    For Dame Religion, as for punk;
    Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

    First in booze, first in shoes, and last in the American League.
    —Administration in the State of Miss, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
