Famous quotes containing the words sea and/or territorial:

    The trumpets sound, the banners fly,
    The glittering spears are ranked ready;
    The shouts o’ war are heard afar,
    The battle closes thick and bloody;
    But it’s no the roar o’ sea or shore
    Wad mak me langer wish to tarry;
    Nor shout o’ war that’s heard afar,
    Its leaving thee, my bonnie Mary.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    All the territorial possessions of all the political establishments in the earth—including America, of course—consist of pilferings from other people’s wash.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
