Famous quotes containing the words company and/or railway:

    People who abhor solitude may abhor company almost as much.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt.

    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
