Lost Tribes

Famous quotes containing the words lost and/or tribes:

    Clogged and soft and sloppy eyes
    Have lost the light that bites or terrifies.
    There are no swans and swallows any more.
    The people settled for chicken and shut the door.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    That those tribes [the Sac and Fox Indians] cannot exist surrounded by our settlements and in continual contact with our citizens is certain. They have neither the intelligence, the industry, the moral habits, nor the desire of improvement which are essential to any favorable change in their condition.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
