Famous quotes containing the word foreign:

    For most visitors to Manhattan, both foreign and domestic, New York is the Shrine of the Good Time. “I don’t see how you stand it,” they often say to the native New Yorker who has been sitting up past his bedtime for a week in an attempt to tire his guest out. “It’s all right for a week or so, but give me the little old home town when it comes to living.” And, under his breath, the New Yorker endorses the transfer and wonders himself how he stands it.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    the young men who watch us from the curbs:
    They hold the glaze of wonder in their stare
    Our crooked backs, hands fetid as old herbs,
    The tallow eyes, wax face, the foreign hair!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be in the right; but our country, right or wrong.
    Stephen Decatur (1779–1820)
