Famous quotes containing the words guard, national, washington and/or air:

    Then the bird
    breaks with his beak the thread
    of dream within him,
    and the tree unrolls
    the shadow that will guard it
    throughout the day.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    In really hard times the rules of the game are altered. The inchoate mass begins to stir. It becomes potent, and when it strikes,... it strikes with incredible emphasis. Those are the rare occasions when a national will emerges from the scattered, specialized, or indifferent blocs of voters who ordinarily elect the politicians. Those are for good or evil the great occasions in a nation’s history.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    Mrs. Sneed and her daughter, Miss Austine Sneed, are visiting us—Washington correspondents of excellent character.... We are much interested in their accounts of Washington affairs. Nothing could be further from our desire than to return to Washington and again enter its whirl, either socially or politically, but we are interested in seeing Washington with the roof off.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    And ‘tis my faith that every flower
    Enjoys the air it breathes.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
