„That is, in fact, the true female voice of the orchestra – a voice at once passionate and chaste, heart-rending, yet soft, which can weep, sigh, and lament, chant, pray, and muse, or burst forth into joyous accents, as none other can do.“

C'est la vraie voix féminine de l'orchestre, voix passionnée et chaste en même temps, déchirante et douce, qui pleure et crie et se lamente, ou chante et prie et rêve, ou éclate en accents joyeux, comme nulle autre pourrait le faire.

„Duluth! The word fell upon my ear with a peculiar and indescribable charm, like the gentle murmur of a low fountain stealing forth in the midst of roses, or the soft sweet accent of an angel’s whisper in the bright, joyous dream of sleeping innocence. ’T was the name for which my soul had panted for years, as the hart panteth for the water-brooks.“

—  J. Proctor Knott American politician 1830 - 1911

Speech on the St. Croix and Bayfield Railroad Bill, Jan. 27, 1871; Knott made this satirical speech, sometimes titled as Duluth! or The Untold Delights of Duluth, while serving in the United States House of Representatives; the speech lampooned Western boosterism by portraying Duluth, Minnesota, in fantastical and glowing language.

„As the fog was lifting a voice come chanting:
This land was made for you and me.“

—  Woody Guthrie American singer-songwriter and folk musician 1912 - 1967

This is one of the more variable of the stanzas; other renditions include:
Where the wind is blowing I go a strolling
The wheat field waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog is lifting and the wind is saying:
This land is made for you and me.
The sun comes shining as I was strolling,
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,
The fog was lifting as a voice come chanting:
This land was made for you and me.
This Land Is Your Land (1940; 1944)
Kontext: When the sun came shining as I was strolling,
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,
As the fog was lifting a voice come chanting:
This land was made for you and me.
