Famous quotes containing the words army and/or finnish:

    Private property is held sacred in all good governments, and particularly in our own. Yet shall the fear of invading it prevent a general from marching his army over a cornfield or burning a house which protects the enemy? A thousand other instances might be cited to show that laws must sometimes be silent when necessity speaks.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    A conversation in English in Finnish and in French can not be held at the same time nor with indifference ever or after a time.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
