Famous quotes containing the words armstrong and/or township:

    rather then men shall say we were hange’d,
    Let them report how we were slaine.’
    —Unknown. Johnie Armstrong (l. 51–52)

    A township where one primitive forest waves above while another primitive forest rots below,—such a town is fitted to raise not only corn and potatoes, but poets and philosophers for the coming ages. In such a soil grew Homer and Confucius and the rest, and out of such a wilderness comes the Reformer eating locusts and wild honey.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
