Famous quotes containing the words north america, america, greater and/or north:

    The Bostonians are really, as a race, far inferior in point of anything beyond mere intellect to any other set upon the continent of North America. They are decidedly the most servile imitators of the English it is possible to conceive.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)

    We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcæ, but Fashion. She spins and weaves and cuts with full authority. The head monkey at Paris puts on a traveller’s cap, and all the monkeys in America do the same.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You would not have thought, if you had seen him lying about thus, that he was the proprietor of so many acres in that neighborhood, was worth six thousand dollars, and had been to Washington. It seemed to me that, like the Irish, he made a greater ado about his sickness than a Yankee does, and was more alarmed about himself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ah, how shall you know the dreary sorrow at the North Gate,
    With Li Po’s name forgotten,
    And we guardsmen fed to the tigers.
    Li Po (701–762)
