Famous quotes containing the words names and/or storm:

    We rarely quote nowadays to appeal to authority ... though we quote sometimes to display our sapience and erudition. Some authors we quote against. Some we quote not at all, offering them our scrupulous avoidance, and so make them part of our “white mythology.” Other authors we constantly invoke, chanting their names in cerebral rituals of propitiation or ancestor worship.
    Ihab Hassan (b. 1925)

    Hail, Columbia! happy land!
    Hail, ye heroes! heaven-born band!
    Who fought and bled in Freedom’s cause,
    Who fought and bled in Freedom’s cause,
    And when the storm of war was gone,
    Enjoyed the peace your valor won.
    Let independence be our boast,
    Ever mindful what it cost;
    Joseph Hopkinson (1770–1842)
