Famous quotes containing the words revolution and/or cedar:

    It is said that when manners are licentious, a revolution is always near: the virtue of woman being the main girth and bandage of society; because a man will not lay up an estate for children any longer than whilst he believes them to be his own.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    He packed a lot of things that she had made
    Most mournfully away in an old chest
    Of hers, and put some chopped-up cedar boughs
    In with them, and tore down the slaughterhouse.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
