Famous quotes containing the words time, indian and/or standard:

    There are some who become spies for money, or out of vanity and megalomania, or out of ambition, or out of a desire for thrills. But the malady of our time is of those who become spies out of idealism.
    Max Lerner (b. 1902)

    Neither doctor, lawyer or Indian chief could love you any more than I do.
    Paul Francis Webster (1907–1984)

    Gentlemen, those confederate flags and our national standard are what has made this union great. In what other country could a man who fought against you be permitted to serve as judge over you, be permitted to run for reelection and bespeak your suffrage on Tuesday next at the poles.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)
