Famous quotes containing the word south:

    Returned this day, the south wind searches,
    And finds young pines and budding birches;
    But finds not the budding man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Up from the South at break of day,
    Bringing to Winchester fresh dismay,
    The affrighted air with a shudder bore,
    Like a herald in haste, to the chieftain’s door,
    The terrible grumble, and rumble, and roar,
    Telling the battle was on once more,
    And Sheridan twenty miles away.
    Thomas Buchanan Read (1822–1872)

    To lib and die in Dixie!
    Away, away, away down South in Dixie!
    Daniel Decatur Emmett (1815–1904)
