Led

Famous quotes containing the word led:

    Well, if it isn’t Aurora Ratchett, goddess of the dawn, a sight for sore eyes.... I always think of Ebenezer Pritchett, the day he led that last charge at Shiloh. There was a gallant trooper, your father. You know, there went a man of quality. There went the flower of the South.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    Young women ... you are, in my opinion, disgracefully ignorant. You have never made a discovery of any sort of importance. You have never shaken an empire or led an army into battle. The plays by Shakespeare are not by you, and you have never introduced a barbarous race to the blessings of civilization. What is your excuse?
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    In enterprise of martial kind,
    When there was any fighting,
    He led his regiment from behind—
    He found it less exciting.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
