Famous quotes containing the words war, persian and/or gulf:

    It is inhuman to continue a war which could easily be ended.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    If one doubts whether Grecian valor and patriotism are not a fiction of the poets, he may go to Athens and see still upon the walls of the temple of Minerva the circular marks made by the shields taken from the enemy in the Persian war, which were suspended there. We have not far to seek for living and unquestionable evidence. The very dust takes shape and confirms some story which we had read.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    His father watched him across the gulf of years and pathos which always must divide a father from his son.
    —J.P. (John Phillips)
