Famous quotes containing the words libraries and/or city:

    riding flatcars to Fresno,
    Across the whole country
    Steep towns, flat towns, even New York,
    And oceans and Europe & libraries & galleries
    And the factories they make rubbers in
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)

    Overcome the Empyrean; hurl
    Heaven and Earth out of their places,
    That in the same calamity
    Brother and brother, friend and friend,
    Family and family,
    City and city may contend.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
