Famous quotes containing the words spelling and/or national:

    We drove the Indians out of the land,
    But a dire revenge those Redmen planned,
    For they fastened a name to every nook,
    And every boy with a spelling book
    Will have to toil till his hair turns gray
    Before he can spell them the proper way.
    Eva March Tappan (1854–1930)

    The progress
    Is permanent like the preordained bulk
    Of the First National Bank
    Like fish sauce, but agreeable.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
