Famous quotes containing the words dared and/or boy:

    The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man’s right to his body, or woman’s right to her soul.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    A man, yet by these tears a little boy again,
    Throwing myself on the sand, confronting the waves,
    I, chanter of pains and joys, uniter of here and hereafter,
    Taking all hints to use them, but swiftly leaping beyond them,
    A reminiscence sing.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
