Cross Country

Famous quotes containing the words cross and/or country:

    There is a mountain in the distant West
    That, sun-defying, in its deep ravines
    Displays a cross of snow upon its side.
    Such is the cross I wear upon my breast
    These eighteen years, through all the changing scenes
    And seasons, changeless since the day she died.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    Tjaden: How do they start a war?
    Albert: Well, one country offends another.
    Tjaden: How could one country offend another? You mean there’s a mountain over in Germany gets mad at a field in France?
    Maxwell Anderson (1888–1959)
