Famous quotes containing the words war and/or snake:

    This is not only a war of soldiers in uniform. It is a war of the people, of all the people, and it must be fought not only on the battlefield but in the cities and the villages, in the factories and on the farms, in the home and in the heart of every man, woman and child who loves freedom.
    Arthur Wimperis (1874–1953)

    The great snake lies ever half awake, at the bottom of the pit of the world, curled
    In folds of himself until he awakens in hunger and moving his head to right and to left prepares for his hour to devour.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
