Famous quotes containing the words carolina, south and/or upper:

    Poetry presents indivisible wholes of human consciousness, modified and ordered by the stringent requirements of form. Prose, aiming at a definite and concrete goal, generally suppresses everything inessential to its purpose; poetry, existing only to exhibit itself as an aesthetic object, aims only at completeness and perfection of form.
    Richard Harter Fogle, U.S. critic, educator. The Imagery of Keats and Shelley, ch. 1, University of North Carolina Press (1949)

    These South savannahs may yet prove battle-fields.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The first to strike will gain the upper hand.
    Chinese proverb.
