I give you France! Give us a name to stir the blood With a warmer glow and a swifter flood, — A name like the sound of a trumpet, clear, And silver-sweet, and iron-strong, That calls three million men to their feet, Ready to...
Página 301 - The example of America must be the example not merely of peace because it will not fight, but of peace because peace is the healing and elevating influence of the world and strife is not.
