Famous quotes containing the words salvation army, army and/or salvation:

    you who put gum in my coffee cup
    and worms in my Jell-O, you who let me pretend
    you were daddy of the poets, witchman, you stand
    for all, for all the bad dead, a Salvation Army Band
    who plays for no one. I am cement. The bird in me is blind
    as I knife out your name and all your dead kind.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    In your Salvation shelter I saw poverty, misery, cold and hunger. You gave them bread and treacle and dreams of heaven. I give from thirty shillings a week to twelve thousand a year. They find their own dreams; but I look after the drainage.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
