Famous quotes containing the words asia and/or south:

    I believe that the fundamental proposition is that we must recognize that the hostilities in Europe, in Africa, and in Asia are all parts of a single world conflict. We must, consequently, recognize that our interests are menaced both in Europe and in the Far East.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    The white gulls south of Victoria
    catch tossed crumbs in midair.
    When anyone hears the Catbird
    he gets lonesome.
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)
