Spain Quotes, Quotations, and Sayings
3 Spain Quotes
Fair land! of chivalry the old domain,
Land of the vine and olive, lovely Spain!
Though not for thee with classic shores to vie
In charms that fix th' enthusiast's pensive eye;
Yet hast thou scenes of beauty richly fraught
With all that wakes the glow of lofty thought.
Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

in the Spanish dominions, but ever shineth on one part or other
we have conquered for our king.
Captain John Smith

The king of Spain is a great potentate, who stands with one foot
in the east and the other in the west; and the sun never sets
that it does not shine on some of his dominions.
