Whistle Speech

Famous quotes containing the words whistle and/or speech:

    Slavery is no scholar, no improver; it does not love the whistle of the railroad; it does not love the newspaper, the mail-bag, a college, a book or a preacher who has the absurd whim of saying what he thinks; it does not increase the white population; it does not improve the soil; everything goes to decay.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    No speech can stain what is noble by nature.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)
