Famous quotes containing the word stand:

    By and by when each nation has 20,000 battleships and 5,000,000 soldiers we shall all be safe and the wisdom of statesmanship will stand confirmed.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Today democracy, liberty, and equality are words to fool the people. No nation can progress with such ideas. They stand in the way of action. Therefore we frankly abolish them. In the future each man will serve the interest of the state with absolute obedience. Let him who refuses beware.
    Charlie Chaplin (1889–1977)

    When I from black and he from white cloud free,
    And round the tent of Godlike lambs we joy,

    I’ll shade him from the heat till he can bear
    To lean in joy upon our father’s knee;
    And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair,
    And be like him, and he will then love me.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
