Famous quotes containing the words flank and/or closing:

    There’s an enduring American compulsion to be on the side of the angels. Expediency alone has never been an adequate American reason for doing anything. When actions are judged, they go before the bar of God, where Mom and the Flag closely flank His presence.
    Jonathan Raban (b. 1942)

    At closing time would go
    In waders and peaked cap
    Into the showery dark,
    A dole-kept breadwinner
    But a natural for work.
    Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
