Famous quotes containing the word slaughter:
“When offense occurred, Slaughter took the trail, and seldom returned with a live prisoner. Usually he reported that he had chased the suspect clean out of the county; these suspects never reappeared in Tombstoneor anywhere else.”
—Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
“I who have cursed
The drunken officer of British rule, how choose
Between this Africa and the English tongue I love?
Betray them both, or give back what they give?
How can I face such slaughter and be cool?
How can I turn from Africa and live?”
—Derek Walcott (b. 1930)
“Once I went so far as to slaughter a woodchuck which ravaged my bean-field,effect his transmigration, as a Tartar would say,and devour him, partly for experiments sake; but though it afforded me a momentary enjoyment, notwithstanding a musky flavor, I saw that the longest use would not make that a good practice, however it might seem to have your woodchucks ready dressed by the village butcher.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
