Indians

Famous quotes containing the word indians:

    The ferryman had told us that all the best Indians were gone except Polis, who was one of the aristocracy.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Among the Indians he had fought;
    And with him many tales he brought
    Of pleasure and of fear;
    Such tales as told to any Maid
    By such a Youth, in the green shade,
    Were perilous to hear.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    For one that comes with a pencil to sketch or sing, a thousand come with an axe or rifle. What a coarse and imperfect use Indians and hunters make of nature! No wonder that their race is so soon exterminated.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
