Famous quotes containing the words birds of, russia and/or birds:

    We must not make a scarecrow of the law,
    Setting it up to fear the birds of prey,
    And let it keep one shape, till custom make it
    Their perch and not their terror.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    How can I explain the difference to me between America and Russia?... the America I’ve known is a place where men on horseback escort union marchers, the Russia I’ve known is a place where men on horseback slaughter young Socialists and Jews.
    Golda Meir (1898–1978)

    May! Be thou never graced with birds that sing,
    Nor Flora’s pride!
    In thee all flowers and roses spring,
    Mine only died.
    William Browne (1591–1643)
