Famous quotes containing the words radicals and/or free:

    Generally young men are regarded as radicals. This is a popular misconception. The most conservative persons I ever met are college undergraduates. The radicals are the men past middle life.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Shall the Spring dawn, and she still clad in smiles,
    And with an unscathed brow,
    Rest in the strong arms of her palm-crowned isles,
    As fair and free as now?

    God has inscribed her doom;
    And, all untroubled in her faith, she waits
    The triumph or the tomb.
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)
