Famous quotes containing the words politics and/or green:

    ...to many a mother’s heart has come the disappointment of a loss of power, a limitation of influence when early manhood takes the boy from the home, or when even before that time, in school, or where he touches the great world and begins to be bewildered with its controversies, trade and economics and politics make their imprint even while his lips are dewy with his mother’s kiss.
    J. Ellen Foster (1840–1910)

    When in our music God is glorified,
    and adoration leaves no room for pride,
    it is as though the whole creation cried Alleluia!
    —Frederick Pratt Green (b. 1903)
