Famous quotes containing the words victoria and/or cross:

    The men who are grandfathers should be the fathers. Grandpas get to do it right with their grandchildren.
    —Anonymous Grandparent. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 2 (1992)

    Although its growth may seem to have been slow, it is to be remembered that it is not a shrub, or plant, to shoot up in the summer and wither in the frosts. The Red Cross is a part of us—it has come to stay—and like the sturdy oak, its spreading branches shall yet encompass and shelter the relief of the nation.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)
