Arlington County

Famous quotes containing the words arlington and/or county:

    For through it all—above, beyond it all—
    I know the far-sent message of the years,
    I feel the coming glory of the Light.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    It would astonish if not amuse, the older citizens of your County who twelve years ago knew me a stranger, friendless, uneducated, penniless boy, working on a flat boat—at ten dollars per month to learn that I have been put down here as the candidate of pride, wealth, and aristocratic family distinction.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
