Famous quotes containing the words force, canadian and/or air:

    March indefatigably on,
    And for the last effect
    Still keep thy Sword erect:
    Besides the force it has to fright
    The Spirits of the shady Night;
    The same Arts that did gain
    A Pow’r must it maintain.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    We’re definite in Nova Scotia—’bout things like ships ... and fish, the best in the world.
    John Rhodes Sturdy, Canadian screenwriter. Richard Rossen. Joyce Cartwright (Ella Raines)

    Speak the speech ... trippingly on the tongue; but if you mouth it ... I had as lief the town crier had spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and as I may say the whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
