Famous quotes containing the word nations:
“The soldier takes pride in saluting his Captain,
The devotee proffers a knee to his Lord,
Some back a mare thrown from a thoroughbred,
Troy backed its Helen, Troy died and adored;
Great nations blossom above,
A slave bows down to a slave.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)

—George Canning (17701827)
“The day of small nations has long passed away. The day of Empires has come.”
