North West

Famous quotes containing the words north and/or west:

    I felt that he, a prisoner in the midst of his enemies and under the sentence of death, if consulted as to his next step or resource, could answer more wisely than all his countrymen beside. He best understood his position; he contemplated it most calmly. Comparatively, all other men, North and South, were beside themselves.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... it matters not what natural endowment a race may have if it prostitutes itself to the service of death.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)
