United Nations Mission

Famous quotes containing the words united, nations and/or mission:

    Emblem: the carapace of the great crowned snail is painted with all the flags of the United Nations.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    For nations vague as weed,
    For nomads among stones,
    Small-statured cross-faced tribes
    And cobble-close families
    In mill-towns on dark mornings
    Life is slow dying.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Every Age has its own peculiar faith.... Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts. Defeated by the utter want of proportion between the means and the end, such attempts might produce martyrs, but never lead to victory.
    Giuseppe Mazzini (1805–1872)
