..the virtue of Yankee upbringing spiritually speaking is of more downright value to me than any past heritages.
Don't you ever shake that lanky Yankee finger at me.
These Yankee politicians are the lowest race of thieves in existence.
All literary men are Red Sox fans to be a Yankee fan in a literate society is to endanger your life.john cheever
And so it is that I carry with me from this State to that high and lonely office to which I now succeed more than fond memories and fast friendships. The enduring qualities of Massachusetts the common threads woven by the Pilgrim and the Puritan, the fisherman and the farmer, the Yankee and the immigrant will not be and could not be forgotten in the Nation's Executive Mansion. They are an indelible part of my life, my convictions, my view of the past, my hopes for the future.
You should have stayed home, Yankee!
