Famous quotes containing the word parliament:
“At the ramparts on the cliff near the old Parliament House I counted twenty-four thirty-two-pounders in a row, pointed over the harbor, with their balls piled pyramid-wise between them,there are said to be in all about one hundred and eighty guns mounted at Quebec,all which were faithfully kept dusted by officials, in accordance with the motto, In time of peace prepare for war; but I saw no preparations for peace: she was plainly an uninvited guest.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
