Famous quotes containing the words union, milk and/or district:

    The sacred obligation to the Union soldiers must not—will not be forgotten nor neglected.... But those who fought against the Nation cannot and do not look to it for relief....

    The roof of England fell
    Great Paris tolled her bell
    And China staunched her milk and wept for bread
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
