Famous quotes containing the words troops and/or ethiopian:

    I have lived long enough: my way of life
    Is fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf;
    And that which should accompany old age,
    As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends,
    I must not look to have.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The Ethiopian cannot change his skin nor the leopard his spots.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
