Famous quotes containing the words centre and/or national:

    Belief and love,—a believing love will relieve us of a vast load of care. O my brothers, God exists. There is a soul at the centre of nature, and over the will of every man, so that none of us can wrong the universe.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the nation.
    —French National Assembly. Declaration of the Rights of Man (Sept. 1791)
