Soldiers

Famous quotes containing the word soldiers:

    I used to think of death ... like I suppose soldiers think of it: it was a possible thing that I could well avoid by my skill.

    All men hesitate
    Separately, always, seeing another year gone
    Frockcoated gentleman, farmer at his gate,
    Villein with mattock, soldiers on their shields,
    All silent, watching the winter coming on.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Two soldiers and a villain are enough to blow up the rights of the citizens.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
