Famous quotes containing the words climb, hill and/or speed:

    To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars.
    Douglass Cross (b. 1920)

    Tawny are the leaves turned, but they still hold.
    It is the harvest; what shall this land produce?
    A meager hill of kernels, a runnel of juice.
    Declension looks from our land, it is old.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    There was such speed in her little body,
    And such lightness in her footfall,
    It is no wonder her brown study
    Astonishes us all.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
