Famous quotes containing the words marathon and/or page:

    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)

    If there is nothing new on the earth, still the traveler always has a resource in the skies. They are constantly turning a new page to view. The wind sets the types on this blue ground, and the inquiring may always read a new truth there.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
