Famous quotes containing the word hill:

    I remember the scenes of battle in which we stood together. I remember especially that broad and deep grave at the foot of the Resaca hill where we left those gallant comrades who fell in that desperate charge. I remember, through it all, the gallantry, devotion and steadfastness, the high-set patriotism you always exhibited.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    In the schoolyard,in the cloakrooms, the children boasted their
    scars of dried snot;wrists and knees garnished with impetigo.
    —Geoffrey Hill (b. 1932)

    The fact that Romans once inhabited her reflects no little dignity on Nature herself; that from some particular hill the Roman once looked out on the sea.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
