Famous quotes containing the words wallace and/or camp:

    When the shadow of death blots out my joy
    And erases the face of the sun
    Give me strength to endure, hope to believe
    That living and dying are one.
    —William L. Wallace (20th century)

    A healthy man, with steady employment, as wood-chopping at fifty cents a cord, and a camp in the woods, will not be a good subject for Christianity. The New Testament may be a choice book to him on some, but not on all or most of his days. He will rather go a-fishing in his leisure hours. The Apostles, though they were fishers too, were of the solemn race of sea-fishers, and never trolled for pickerel on inland streams.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
