Famous quotes containing the word march:

    What if there’s nothing up there at the top?
    Where are the captains that govern mankind?

    March wind, and any old tune,
    March march and how does it run.

    Stilted its dusty march over deep ruts
    Up the hillside covered with queen’s lace
    To the patch of weeds known finally to all.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
