Famous quotes containing the word soldiers:

    Two soldiers and a villain are enough to blow up the rights of the citizens.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    All men hesitate
    Separately, always, seeing another year gone
    Frockcoated gentleman, farmer at his gate,
    Villein with mattock, soldiers on their shields,
    All silent, watching the winter coming on.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    It was soldiers went marching over the rocks
    And still the birds came, came in watery flocks,
    Because it was spring and the birds had to come.
    No doubt that soldiers had to be marching
    And that drums had to be rolling, rolling, rolling.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
