Famous quotes containing the words famous, blood and/or feuds:

    Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante,
    Had a bad cold, nevertheless
    Is known to be the wisest woman in Europe,
    With a wicked pack of cards.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    The cloud was so dark that it needed all the bright lights that could be turned upon it. But for four years there was a contagion of nobility in the land, and the best blood North and South poured itself out a libation to propitiate the deities of Truth and Justice. The great sin of slavery was washed out, but at what a cost!
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    We are asking the nations of Europe between whom rivers of blood have flowed to forget the feuds of a thousand years.
    Winston Churchill (1874–1965)
