Famous quotes containing the words holland and/or north:

    Naggers always know what they are doing. They weigh up the risks, then they go on and on and on until they get what they want or until they get punched.
    —Jools Holland (b. 1958)

    We have heard all of our lives how, after the Civil War was over, the South went back to straighten itself out and make a living again. It was for many years a voiceless part of the government. The balance of power moved away from it—to the north and the east. The problems of the north and the east became the big problem of the country and nobody paid much attention to the economic unbalance the South had left as its only choice.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
