Famous quotes containing the words guard, national and/or air:

    Let us guard against saying that death is opposed to life. The living is merely a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Any honest examination of the national life proves how far we are from the standard of human freedom with which we began. The recovery of this standard demands of everyone who loves this country a hard look at himself, for the greatest achievments must begin somewhere, and they always begin with the person. If we are not capable of this examination, we may yet become one of the most distinguished and monumental failures in the history of nations.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    Mothers of America
    let your kids go to the movies!
    get them out of the house so they won’t know what you’re up to
    it’s true that fresh air is good for the body
    but what about the soul
    that grows in darkness, embossed by silvery images
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)
