Famous quotes containing the words service and/or life:

    We have in the service the scum of the earth as common soldiers.
    Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke Wellington (1769–1852)

    And all the great traditions of the Past
    They saw reflected in the coming time.

    And thus forever with reverted look
    The mystic volume of the world they read,
    Spelling it backward, like a Hebrew book,
    Till life became a Legend of the Dead.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
