Famous quotes containing the words arabian and/or gulf:

    O animal excellence,
    Take pterodactyl flight
    Fire-winged into the air
    And find your lair
    With cunning sense
    On some Arabian bight....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    I candidly confess that I have ever looked on Cuba as the most interesting addition which could ever be made to our system of States.

    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
