Famous quotes containing the words guard, national, california and/or air:

    One should never intend to do harm to others, but should always guard against the harm others might do to him.
    Chinese proverb.

    I foresee the time when the painter will paint that scene, no longer going to Rome for a subject; the poet will sing it; the historian record it; and, with the Landing of the Pilgrims and the Declaration of Independence, it will be the ornament of some future national gallery, when at least the present form of slavery shall be no more here. We shall then be at liberty to weep for Captain Brown. Then, and not till then, we will take our revenge.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The California fever is not likely to take us off.... There is neither romance nor glory in digging for gold after the manner of the pictures in the geography of diamond washing in Brazil.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    But not luck
    brought us here. By design
    clear air and cold wind polish
    the river lights, by design
    we are to live now in a new place.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
