Famous quotes containing the words wales, england, justice and/or youth:

    I just come and talk to the plants, really—very important to talk to them, they respond I find.
    Charles, Prince Of Wales (b. 1948)

    It was always accounted a virtue in a man to love his country. With us it is now something more than a virtue. It is a necessity. When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    The hour when you say, “What does my justice matter? I do not see that I am embers and coals. But the just are embers and coals!”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Age is opportunity no less
    Than youth itself, though in another dress,
    And as the evening twilight fades away
    The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)
