Famous quotes containing the words parliament and/or montgomery:

    The war shook down the Tsardom, an unspeakable abomination, and made an end of the new German Empire and the old Apostolic Austrian one. It ... gave votes and seats in Parliament to women.... But if society can be reformed only by the accidental results of horrible catastrophes ... what hope is there for mankind in them? The war was a horror and everybody is the worse for it.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Yet nightly pitch my moving tent,
    A day’s march nearer home.
    —James Montgomery (1771–1854)
