Famous quotes containing the word land:

    This land is your land & this land is my land—sure—but the world is run by those that never listen to music anyway.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    We grant no dukedoms to the few,
    We hold like rights and shall;—
    Equal on Sunday in the pew,
    On Monday in the mall.
    For what avail the plough or sail,
    Or land or life, if freedom fail?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Ah! never shall the land forget
    How gushed the life-blood of her brave—
    Gushed, warm with hope and courage yet,
    Upon the soil they fought to save.
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
