Famous quotes containing the words cavalry and/or guides:

    To fight aloud is very brave,
    But gallanter I know,
    Who charge within the bosom
    The Cavalry of Woe.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    And time brings down what is both strong and tall.
    But plants new set to be eradicate,
    And buds new blown, to have so short a date,
    Is by his hand alone that guides nature and fate.
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)
