Laurence Marks

Famous quotes containing the words laurence and/or marks:

    It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,
    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings—
    I know why the caged bird sings!
    —Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)

    I am glad I made the late race. It gave me a hearing on the great and durable question of the age, which I could have had in no other way; and though I now sink out of view, and shall be forgotten, I believe I have made some marks which will tell for the cause of civil liberty long after I am gone.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
