Armed Gangs

Famous quotes containing the words armed and/or gangs:

    For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them. I know they are as lively, and as vigorously productive, as those fabulous dragon’s teeth; and being sown up and down, may chance to spring up armed men.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Word’s gane to the kitchen,
    And word’s gane to the ha’,
    That Marie Hamilton gangs wi’ bairn
    To the hichest Stewart of a’.
    Unknown. Mary Hamilton (l. 1–4)
