Famous quotes containing the words syrian, government and/or attack:

    If in that Syrian garden, ages slain,
    You sleep, and know not you are dead in vain,
    Nor even in dreams behold how dark and bright
    Ascends in smoke and fire by day and night
    The hate you died to quench and could but fan,
    Sleep well and see no morning, son of man.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    The people will save their government, if the government itself will allow them.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    It is well worth the efforts of a lifetime to have attained knowledge which justifies an attack on the root of all evil—viz. the deadly atheism which asserts that because forms of evil have always existed in society, therefore they must always exist; and that the attainment of a high ideal is a hopeless chimera.
    Elizabeth Blackwell (1821–1910)
