Famous quotes containing the words motorcycle, racing, season and/or grand:

    Kicking the heart
    with pain’s big boots running up and down
    the intestines like a motorcycle racer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Upscale people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they don’t get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goat’s cheese ... get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    When we reached the lake, about half past eight in the evening, it was still steadily raining, and harder than before; and, in that fresh, cool atmosphere, the hylodes were peeping and the toads ringing about the lake universally, as in the spring with us. It was as if the season had revolved backward two or three months, or I had arrived at the abode of perpetual spring.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Democracy is the menopause of Western society, the Grand Climacteric of the body social. Fascism is its middle-aged lust.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
