Famous quotes containing the words war and/or cold:

    The connection between dress and war is not far to seek; your finest clothes are those you wear as soldiers.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Though taste, though genius bless
    To some divine excess,
    Faint’s the cold work till thou inspire the whole;
    What each, what all supply,
    May court, may charm our eye,
    Thou, only thou, canst raise the meeting soul!
    William Collins (1721–1759)
