Famous quotes containing the word foreign:

    It tosses up our losses, the torn seine,
    The shattered lobster pot, the broken oar
    And the gear of foreign dead men. The sea has many voices,
    Many gods and many voices.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Insurrection—by means of guerrilla bands—is the true method of warfare for all nations desirous of emancipating themselves from a foreign yoke ... It is invincible, indestructible.
    Giuseppe Mazzini (1805–1872)
