Then, William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, stepped forward and said: "All of you who belong to nobody, you follow me."

Quotes About Bad Solutions

"If only you and I (or you or I) doesnt go and die before we have a chance to meet! And yet, if we did no doubt there would be some good and loving reason for it.

And finally poetry, which is grater than any country ; poetry with its bright palaces." - Author: Halldór Laxness

Quotes About Mammal

"There are transitional forms between the metals and non-metals; between chemical combinations and simple mixtures, between animals and plants, between phanerogams and cryptogams, and between mammals and birds [...].
