Famous quotes containing the words springs, french and/or lick:

    At Eutaw Springs the valiant died;
    Their limbs with dust are covered o’er—
    Weep on, ye springs, your tearful tide;
    How many heroes are no more!
    Philip Freneau (1752–1832)

    ... the French know that you must not succeed you must rise from the ashes and how could you rise from the ashes if there were no ashes, but the Germans never think of ashes and so when there are ashes there is no rising, not at all and every day and in every way this is clearer and clearer.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    As God is my witness, they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folks. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill, as God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again!
    Sidney Howard (1891–1939)
