Famous quotes containing the words rail and/or capital:

    Old man, it’s four flights up and for what?
    Your room is hardly any bigger than your bed.
    Puffing as you climb, you are a brown woodcut
    stooped over the thin rail and the wornout tread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The capital is become an overgrown monster; which like a dropsical head, will in time leave the body and extremities without nourishment and support.
    Tobias Smollett (1721–1771)
