Famous quotes containing the word foreign:

    Let us waive that agitated national topic, as to whether such multitudes of foreign poor should be landed on our American shores; let us waive it, with the one only thought, that if they can get here, they have God’s right to come.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Man-in-seed, in seed-at-zero,
    From the star-flanked fields of space,
    Thunders on the foreign town
    With a sand-bagged garrison....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Go to foreign countries and you will get to know the good things one possesses at home.
