Famous quotes containing the words guard, national, island and/or air:

    And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    Bible: New Testament, Philippians 4:7.

    In really hard times the rules of the game are altered. The inchoate mass begins to stir. It becomes potent, and when it strikes,... it strikes with incredible emphasis. Those are the rare occasions when a national will emerges from the scattered, specialized, or indifferent blocs of voters who ordinarily elect the politicians. Those are for good or evil the great occasions in a nation’s history.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    They all came, some wore sentiments
    Emblazoned on T-shirts, proclaiming the lateness
    Of the hour, and indeed the sun slanted its rays
    Through branches of Norfolk Island pine as though
    Politely clearing its throat....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Mediocre people have an answer for everything and are astonished at nothing. They always want to have the air of knowing better than you what you are going to tell them; when, in their turn, they begin to speak, they repeat to you with the greatest confidence, as if dealing with their own property, the things that they have heard you say yourself at some other place.... A capable and superior look is the natural accompaniment of this type of character.
    Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)
