Famous quotes containing the words war and/or years:

    “... War is for everyone, for children too.
    I wasn’t going to tell you and I mustn’t.
    The best way is to come uphill with me
    And have our fire and laugh and be afraid.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Bourbon’s the only drink. You can take all that champagne stuff and pour it down the English Channel. Well, why wait 80 years before you can drink the stuff? Great vineyards, huge barrels aging forever, poor little old monks running around testing it, just so some woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma can say it tickles her nose.
    John Michael Hayes (b.1919)
