Famous quotes containing the words cross and/or southern:

    But soft, behold! lo where it comes again!
    I’ll cross it though it blast me. Stay, illusion!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    No: until I want the protection of Massachusetts to be extended to me in some distant Southern port, where my liberty is endangered, or until I am bent solely on building up an estate at home by peaceful enterprise, I can afford to refuse allegiance to Massachusetts, and her right to my property and life. It costs me less in every sense to incur the penalty of disobedience to the State than it would to obey. I should feel as if I were worth less in that case.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
