Famous quotes containing the words town and/or safety:

    Americans living in Latin American countries are often more snobbish than the Latins themselves. The typical American has quite a bit of money by Latin American standards, and he rarely sees a countryman who doesn’t. An American businessman who would think nothing of being seen in a sport shirt on the streets of his home town will be shocked and offended at a suggestion that he appear in Rio de Janeiro, for instance, in anything but a coat and tie.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)

    Love no man in good earnest, nor no further in sport
    neither, than with safety of a pure blush thou mayst in
    honor come off again.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
