Famous quotes containing the words squadrons and/or flying:

    As you know, God is generally on the side of the big squadrons against the small ones.
    Roger De Bussy-Rabutin (1618–1693)

    The sea was wet as wet could be,
    The sands were dry as dry.
    You could not see a cloud, because
    No cloud was in the sky:
    No birds were flying overhead—
    There were no birds to fly.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
