Famous quotes containing the words war and/or cold:

    I certainly know that if the war fails, the administration fails, and that I will be blamed for it, whether I deserve it or not. And I ought to be blamed, if I could do better. You think I could do better; therefore you blame me already. I think I could not do better; therefore I blame you for blaming me.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    O land of manure and mist, of dirty, cold rain.
    Petrus Augustus De Genestet (1829–1861)
