Famous quotes containing the words british and/or school:
“These battles sound incredible to us. I think that posterity will doubt if such things ever were,if our bold ancestors who settled this land were not struggling rather with the forest shadows, and not with a copper-colored race of men. They were vapors, fever and ague of the unsettled woods. Now, only a few arrowheads are turned up by the plow. In the Pelasgic, the Etruscan, or the British story, there is nothing so shadowy and unreal.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Their school a crowd, his master solitude;
Through Jonathan Swifts dark grove he passed, and there
Plucked bitter wisdom that enriched his blood.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
