Famous quotes containing the word lines:

    Indeed, I believe that in the future, when we shall have seized again, as we will seize if we are true to ourselves, our own fair part of commerce upon the sea, and when we shall have again our appropriate share of South American trade, that these railroads from St. Louis, touching deep harbors on the gulf, and communicating there with lines of steamships, shall touch the ports of South America and bring their tribute to you.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    Who will in fairest book of Nature know
    How virtue may best lodged in beauty be,
    Let him but learn of love to read in thee,
    Stella, those fair lines which true goodness show.
    There shall he find all vices’ overthrow,
    Not by rude force, but sweetest sovereignty
    Of reason,
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

    I need not tell you of the inadequacy of the American shipping marine on the Pacific Coast.... For this reason it seems to me that there is no subject to which Congress can better devote its attention in the coming session than the passage of a bill which shall encourage our merchant marine in such a way as to establish American lines directly between New York and the eastern ports and South American ports, and both our Pacific Coast ports and the Orient and the Philippines.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
