Famous quotes containing the word pole:

    O, withered is the garland of the war,
    The soldier’s pole is fallen!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Not because Socrates has said it, but because it is really in my nature, and perhaps a little more than it should be, I look upon all humans as my fellow-citizens, and would embrace a Pole as I would a Frenchman, subordinating this national tie to the common and universal one.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    Oh Sleep! it is a gentle thing,
    Beloved from pole to pole!
    To Mary Queen the praise be given!
    She sent the gentle sleep from Heaven,
    That slid into my soul.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
