Famous quotes containing the word lions:

    Probably more than youngsters at any age, early adolescents expect the adults they care about to demonstrate the virtues they want demonstrated. They also tend to expect adults they admire to be absolutely perfect. When adults disappoint them, they can be critical and intolerant.
    —The Lions Clubs International and the Quest Nation. The Surprising Years, I, ch.4 (1985)

    No stout
    Lesson showed how to chat with death. We brought
    No brass fortissimo, among our talents,
    To holler down the lions in this air.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    these heroic happy dead
    who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
    they did not stop to think they died instead
    then shall the voice of liberty be mute?

    He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)
