Famous quotes containing the words british and/or israelites:

    It is said that the British Empire is very large and respectable, and that the United States are a first-rate power. We do not believe that a tide rises and falls behind every man which can float the British Empire like a chip, if he should ever harbor it in his mind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The Israelites groaned under their slavery, and cried out. Out of the slavery their cry for help rose up to God.
