Famous quotes containing the words scotland and/or historic:

    Four and twenty at her back
    And they were a’ clad out in green;
    Tho the King of Scotland had been there
    The warst o’ them might hae been his Queen.

    On we lap and awa we rade
    Till we cam to yon bonny ha’
    Whare the roof was o’ the beaten gold
    And the floor was o’ the cristal a’.
    —Unknown. The Wee Wee Man (l. 21–28)

    It is, all in all, a historic error to believe that the master makes the school; the students make it!
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)
