Famous quotes containing the words guard and/or national:

    Virgil [Publius Vergilius Maro] (70–19 B.C.)

    I, with other Americans, have perhaps unduly resented the stream of criticism of American life ... more particularly have I resented the sneers at Main Street. For I have known that in the cottages that lay behind the street rested the strength of our national character.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)
