Famous quotes containing the words canada and/or security:

    In Canada an ordinary New England house would be mistaken for the château, and while every village here contains at least several gentlemen or “squires,” there is but one to a seigniory.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
