Famous quotes containing the words parliament, south and/or shields:

    A Parliament is that to the Commonwealth which the soul is to the body.... It behoves us therefore to keep the facility of that soul from distemper.
    John Pym (1584–1643)

    ...I always said if I lived to get grown and had a chance, I was going to try to get something for my mother and I was going to do something for the black man of the South if it would cost my life; I was determined to see that things were changed.
    Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)

    Your cloak hides the sinner,
    your cloak shields the lover,
    colour of wine,
    cyclamen,
    red rhododendron.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
