Famous quotes containing the words team and/or adjustment:
“giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”
—Clement Clarke Moore (17791863)
