Famous quotes containing the words royal, battle, rumble and/or memorial:
“Are you there, Africa with the bulging chest and oblong thigh? Sulking Africa, wrought of iron, in the fire, Africa of the millions of royal slaves, deported Africa, drifting continent, are you there? Slowly you vanish, you withdraw into the past, into the tales of castaways, colonial museums, the works of scholars.”
—Jean Genet (19101986)
“No slogan of democracy; no battle cry of freedom is more striving then the American parents simple statement which all of you have heard many times: I want my child to go to college.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
“The rumble of a subway train,
the rattle of the taxis.”
—Al Dubin (18911945)
“I hope there will be no effort to put up a shaft or any monument of that sort in memory of me or of the other women who have given themselves to our work. The best kind of a memorial would be a school where girls could be taught everything useful that would help them to earn an honorable livelihood; where they could learn to do anything they were capable of, just as boys can. I would like to have lived to see such a school as that in every great city of the United States.”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
