- Kossuth, Lajos 1802-1894. Hungarian revolutionary leader who sought Hungary's independence from Austria. Declaring the Hapsburg dynasty invalid, he briefly led a provisional government (1849) until Russia interceded on Austria's behalf.
“Kossuth made him editor of his paper, _Kossuth Hirlapja_.”
“No, he did not; he wore a wide-brimmed slouch hat, what they used to call a Kossuth hat.”
“It was sufficient to name Kossuth to bring fire to the old man's eye and eulogistic volubility to his tongue.”
“I found a Hungarian whose name Kossuth had given me as the alternative probable medium of the renewed relations with Vienna, but he not only refused to have any relations with the late dictator, but strongly warned me of the possible consequences to myself of the mission I was on, and made me see very clearly that Kossuth overrated his influence on the Hungarians after the debacle, for which he was largely responsible.”
“He would have ordered his officers out in epaulets and the full dress "Kossuth" hat of the period, but epaulets had been discarded during the war and not yet resumed on the far frontier.”
“Kossuth," and passing one hand through the long locks of curling black hair, he swept it away from his clear, smooth brow, and stood confronting his wrathful parent with a calm, unembarrassed aspect.”
“Kossuth," said Mr. Webster, in a private letter from Washington, "is a gentleman in appearance and demeanor, is handsome enough in person, evidently intellectual and dignified, amiable and graceful in his manners.”
“And it just feels odd to have to ignore the people who are waving a finger in the air to signify that they are invisible, or to have to run away screaming from a guy who says something like: "In the name of Kossuth, fear me.”
“Ethnic Hungarian Bishop Laszlo Tokes from Romania sang a song about freedom of Hungarian 19th century statesman Lajos Kossuth, who inspired the late Lantos.”
“And it starts with the most intriguing prospect of all: a rare outing of the early symphonic poem Kossuth at the Festival Hall in a programme repeated in Basingstoke the following night.”
