Famous quotes containing the words white and/or bird:

    We are the only class in history that has been left to fight its battles alone, unaided by the ruling powers. White labor and the freed black men had their champions, but where are ours?
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    The skreak and skritter of evening gone
    And grackles gone and sorrows of the sun,
    The sorrows of sun, too, gone . . . the moon and moon,
    The yellow moon of words about the nightingale
    In measureless measures, not a bird for me....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
