Famous quotes containing the words blind and/or country:
“So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom yet for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in handDid one but know!”
—Christina Georgina Rossetti (18301894)
“The country needs the political work of women to-day as much as it has ever needed woman in any other work at any other time.”
—J. Ellen Foster (18401910)
