Famous quotes containing the words sea and/or march:

    You and I were a couple of drunks on the sea of booze and the boat sank.
    —J.P. (James Pinckney)

    After the brief bivouac of Sunday,
    their eyes, in the forced march of Monday to Saturday,
    hoist the white flag, flutter in the snow storm of paper,
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)
