Famous quotes containing the words martial and/or van:

    Let the martial songs be written, let the dirges disappear. Let a
    race of men now rise and take control!
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    Oh, London is a man’s town, there’s power in the air;
    And Paris is a woman’s town, with flowers in her hair;
    And it’s sweet to dream in Venice, and it’s great to study Rome;
    But when it comes to living, there is no place like home.
    —Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)
