Famous quotes containing the words artillery and/or field:

    Another success is the post-office, with its educating energy augmented by cheapness and guarded by a certain religious sentiment in mankind; so that the power of a wafer or a drop of wax or gluten to guard a letter, as it flies over sea over land and comes to its address as if a battalion of artillery brought it, I look upon as a fine meter of civilization.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The field of the poor may yield much food, but it is swept away through injustice.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 13:23.
