Famous quotes containing the words san, district, oak, grove and/or school:

    We had won. Pimps got out of their polished cars and walked the streets of San Francisco only a little uneasy at the unusual exercise. Gamblers, ignoring their sensitive fingers, shook hands with shoeshine boys.... Beauticians spoke to the shipyard workers, who in turn spoke to the easy ladies.... I thought if war did not include killing, I’d like to see one every year. Something like a festival.
    Maya Angelou (b. 1928)

    Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    When the red-cheeked, dancing girls, April and May, trip home to the wintry, misanthropic woods; even the barest, ruggedest, most thunder-cloven old oak will at least send forth some few green sprouts, to welcome such glad-hearted visitants.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Worry and brown desk
    Stain it by infusion. There aren’t enough tags at the end,
    And the grove is blind, blossoming, but we are too porous to hear it.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    We have passed the time of ... the laisser-faire [sic] school which believes that the government ought to do nothing but run a police force.
