Famous quotes containing the words persian and/or gulf:
“The threadbare trees, so poor and thin,
They are no wealthier than I;
But with as brave a core within
They rear their boughs to the October sky.
Poor knights they are which bravely wait
The charge of Winters cavalry,
Keeping a simple Roman state,
Discumbered of their Persian luxury.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“His father watched him across the gulf of years and pathos which always must divide a father from his son.”
—J.P. (John Phillips)
