Famous quotes containing the words institute and/or earth:

    Whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    “... You could sit there with the stains on your shoes
    Of the fresh earth from your own baby’s grave
    And talk about your everyday concerns.
    You had stood the spade up against the wall
    Outside there in the entry, for I saw it.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
