Famous quotes containing the word lamps:

    How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn’t love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.
    Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Falloden (1862–1933)
