Famous quotes containing the words regiment, light and/or horse:

    We had an inspection today of the brigade. The Twenty-third was pronounced the crack regiment in appearance, ... [but] I could see only six to ten in a company of the old men. They all smiled as I rode by. But as I passed away I couldn’t help dropping a few natural tears. I felt as I did when I saw them mustered in at Camp Chase.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    For it is wretchedness that endures, shedding its cancerous light on all it approaches:

    All good intentions, all that was arguable.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    When a friend calls to me from the road
    And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
    I don’t stand still and look around
    On all the hills I haven’t hoed....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
