Famous quotes containing the words troops and/or border:

    But, where the road runs near the stream,
    Oft through the trees they catch a glance
    Of passing troops in the sun’s beam—
    Pennon, and plume, and flashing lance!
    Forth to the world those soldiers fare,
    To life, to cities, and to war!
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    “Although our love is waning, let us stand
    By the lone border of the lake once more,
    Together in that hour of gentleness
    When the poor tired child, Passion, falls asleep....”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
