Famous quotes containing the words raid and/or air:
“John Brown and Giuseppe Garibaldi were contemporaries not solely in the matter of time; their endeavors as liberators link their names where other likeness is absent; and the peaks of their careers were reached almost simultaneously: the Harpers Ferry Raid occurred in 1859, the raid on Sicily in the following year. Both events, however differing in character, were equally quixotic.”
—John Cournos (18811956)
“Nor sequent centuries could hit
Orbit and sum of SHAKSPEAREs wit.
The men who lived with him became
Poets, for the air was fame.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
