Famous quotes containing the word usher:

    [Anarchism] is the philosophy of the sovereignty of the individual. It is the theory of social harmony. It is the great, surging, living truth that is reconstructing the world, and that will usher in the Dawn.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    As long as skies are blue, and fields are green
    Evening must usher night, night urge the morrow,
    Month follow month with woe, and year wake year to sorrow
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    This war no longer bears the characteristics of former inter-European conflicts. It is one of those elemental conflicts which usher in a new millennium and which shake the world once in a thousand years.
