Famous quotes containing the words voices, american and/or family:

    To you, God the Singer, our voices we raise,
    to you Song Incarnate, we give all our praise,
    to you, Holy Spirit, our life and our breath,
    be glory for ever, through life and through death.
    Peter Davison (20th century)

    Our security depends on the Allied Powers winning against aggressors. The Axis Powers intend to destroy democracy, it is anathema to them. We cannot provide that aid if the public are against it; therefore, it is our responsibility to persuade the public that aid to the victims of aggression is aid to American security. I expect the members of my administration to take every opportunity to speak to this issue wherever they are invited to address public forums in the weeks ahead.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    No wealth can buy the requisite leisure, freedom, and independence which are the capital in this profession. It comes only by the grace of God. It requires a direct dispensation from Heaven to become a walker. You must be born into the family of the Walkers. Ambulator nascitur, non fit.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
