Famous quotes containing the words army and/or david:

    Private property is held sacred in all good governments, and particularly in our own. Yet shall the fear of invading it prevent a general from marching his army over a cornfield or burning a house which protects the enemy? A thousand other instances might be cited to show that laws must sometimes be silent when necessity speaks.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Nothing can rightly compel a simple and brave man to a vulgar sadness.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
