Famous quotes containing the words cities and/or host:

    How far men go for the material of their houses! The inhabitants of the most civilized cities, in all ages, send into far, primitive forests, beyond the bounds of their civilization, where the moose and bear and savage dwell, for their pine boards for ordinary use. And, on the other hand, the savage soon receives from cities iron arrow-points, hatchets, and guns, to point his savageness with.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When the guests have left, the host is at peace.
    Chinese proverb.
