Famous quotes containing the words exchange and/or local:

    We never exchange more than three words with a Friend in our lives on that level to which our thoughts and feelings almost habitually rise.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The poet’s eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,
    Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
    And as imagination bodies forth
    The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
    Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing
    A local habitation and a name.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
