Famous quotes containing the words civil, war, mandatory and/or palestine:

    The lakes are something which you are unprepared for; they lie up so high, exposed to the light, and the forest is diminished to a fine fringe on their edges, with here and there a blue mountain, like amethyst jewels set around some jewel of the first water,—so anterior, so superior, to all the changes that are to take place on their shores, even now civil and refined, and fair as they can ever be.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Those wars are unjust which are undertaken without provocation. For only a war waged for revenge or defense can be just.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    Off south, the bison multiply so fast
    a slaughter’s mandatory every spring
    and every spring the creeks get fat
    and Kicking Horse fills up.
    Richard Hugo (1923–1982)

    I know a lady in Venice would have walked barefoot to Palestine for a touch of his nether lip.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
