Famous quotes containing the words dock and/or south:

    You turn
    To speak to someone beside the dock and the lighthouse
    Shines like garnets. It has become a stricture.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The cloud was so dark that it needed all the bright lights that could be turned upon it. But for four years there was a contagion of nobility in the land, and the best blood North and South poured itself out a libation to propitiate the deities of Truth and Justice. The great sin of slavery was washed out, but at what a cost!
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)
