Famous quotes containing the words park, state, fort and/or harrison:

    Is a park any better than a coal mine? What’s a mountain got that a slag pile hasn’t? What would you rather have in your garden—an almond tree or an oil well?
    Jean Giraudoux (1882–1944)

    However painful it may be for me to accept this conclusion, I am obliged to state it: for the black man there is only one destiny. And it is white.
    Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)

    The newspapers are the ruling power. Any other government is reduced to a few marines at Fort Independence. If a man neglects to read the Daily Times, government will go down on its knees to him, for this is the only treason these days.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If the dignity as well as the prestige and influence of the United States are not to be wholly sacrificed, we must protect those who, in foreign ports, display the flag or wear the colors of this Government against insult, brutality, and death, inflicted in resentment of the acts of their Government, and not for any fault of their own.
    —Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
