Famous quotes containing the words boulevard, cedar and/or crest:

    Ev’ry street’s a boulevard in old New York.
    Bob Hilliard (1928–1971)

    It was evening all afternoon.
    It was snowing
    And it was going to snow.
    The blackbird sat
    In the cedar limbs.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    What shall he have that killed the deer?
    His leather skin and horns to wear.
    Then sing him home.
    Take thou no scorn to wear the horn,
    It was a crest ere thou wast born;
    Thy father’s father wore it,
    And thy father bore it.
    The horn, the horn, the lusty horn
    Is not a thing to laugh to scorn.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
