Famous quotes containing the words cars and/or hopper:

    When, at rare intervals, some thought visits one, as perchance he is walking on a railroad, then, indeed, the cars go by without his hearing them. But soon, by some inexorable law, our life goes by and the cars return.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Maxim de Winter: Tell me, is Mrs. Van Hopper a friend of yours or just a relation?
    Mrs. de Winter: No, she’s my employer. I’m what’s known as a paid companion.
    Maxim de Winter: I didn’t know that companionship could be bought.
    Robert E. Sherwood (1896–1955)
