Famous quotes containing the words germany and/or winter:

    We are fighting in the quarrel of civilization against barbarism, of liberty against tyranny. Germany has become a menace to the whole world. She is the most dangerous enemy of liberty now existing.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

    All men hesitate
    Separately, always, seeing another year gone
    Frockcoated gentleman, farmer at his gate,
    Villein with mattock, soldiers on their shields,
    All silent, watching the winter coming on.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
