Famous quotes containing the word land:

    Women over fifty already form one of the largest groups in the population structure of the western world. As long as they like themselves, they will not be an oppressed minority. In order to like themselves they must reject trivialization by others of who and what they are. A grown woman should not have to masquerade as a girl in order to remain in the land of the living.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood.
    John Brown (1800–1859)

    croppers rotting shacks
    with famine, terror, flood, and plague near by;
    where sentiment and hatred still held sway
    and only bitter land was washed away.
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
