Famous quotes containing the word march:

    At the earliest ending of winter,
    In March, a scrawny cry from outside
    Seemed like a sound in his mind.
    He knew that he heard it,
    A bird’s cry, at daylight or before,
    In the early March wind.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The enemy of the conventional wisdom is not ideas but the march of events.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    Britannia needs no bulwarks,
    No towers along the steep;
    Her march is o’er the mountain-waves,
    Her home is on the deep.
    Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)
