Who is margaret anderson?

Famous quotes containing the words margaret anderson and/or anderson:

    How can anyone be interested in war?—that glorious pursuit of annihilation with its ceremonious bellowings and trumpetings over the mangling of human bones and muscles and organs and eyes, its inconceivable agonies which could have been prevented by a few well- chosen, reasonable words. How, why, did this unnecessary business begin? Why does anyone want to read about it—this redundant human madness which men accept as inevitable?
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    John Anderson my jo, John,
    We clamb the hill the gither;
    And mony a canty day, John,
    We’ve had wi’ ane anither:
    Now we maun totter down, John,
    And hand in hand we’ll go;
    And sleep the gither at the foot,
    John Anderson my Jo.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
