Famous quotes containing the word union:

    The old ideals are dead as nails—nothing there. It seems to me there remains only this perfect union with a woman—sort of ultimate marriage—and there isn’t anything else.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    So we grew together
    Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
    But yet an union in partition,
    Two lovely berries moulded on one stem.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Some are petitioning the State to dissolve the Union, to disregard the requisitions of the President. Why do they not dissolve it themselves,—the union between themselves and the State,—and refuse to pay their quota into its treasury? Do not they stand in the same relation to the State that the State does to the Union? And have not the same reasons prevented the State from resisting the Union which have prevented them from resisting the State?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
