Famous quotes containing the words marine and/or harvest:
“People run away from the name subsidy. It is a subsidy. I am not afraid to call it so. It is paid for the purpose of giving a merchant marine to the whole country so that the trade of the whole country will be benefitted thereby, and the men running the ships will of course make a reasonable profit.... Unless we have a merchant marine, our navy if called upon for offensive or defensive work is going to be most defective.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“For I have had too much
Of apple-picking: I am overtired
Of the great harvest I myself desired.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
