Famous quotes containing the words cross and/or gilt:

    Although its growth may seem to have been slow, it is to be remembered that it is not a shrub, or plant, to shoot up in the summer and wither in the frosts. The Red Cross is a part of us—it has come to stay—and like the sturdy oak, its spreading branches shall yet encompass and shelter the relief of the nation.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)

    In that November off Tehuantepec,
    The slopping of the sea grew still one night
    And in the morning summer hued the deck

    And made one think of rosy chocolate
    And gilt umbrellas.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
