Famous quotes containing the words asia and/or northern:

    So-called Western Civilization, as practised in half of Europe, some of Asia and a few parts of North America, is better than anything else available. Western civilization not only provides a bit of life, a pinch of liberty and the occasional pursuance of happiness, it’s also the only thing that’s ever tried to. Our civilization is the first in history to show even the slightest concern for average, undistinguished, none-too-commendable people like us.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    ‘What is the world, O soldiers?
    It is I,
    I, this incessant snow,
    This northern sky;
    Walter De La Mare (1873–1956)
