Famous quotes containing the words bridge and/or island:

    Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.
    Audre Lorde (1934–1992)

They are under an English speaking government and are a part of the territory of an English speaking nation....

    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
