Famous quotes containing the words freeway and/or princes:
“The landscape of the northern Sprawl woke confused memories of childhood for Case, dead grass tufting the cracks in a canted slab of freeway concrete. The train began to decelerate ten kilometers from the airport. Case watched the sun rise on the landscape of childhood, on broken slag and the rusting shells of refineries.”
—William Gibson (b. 1948)
“I regret the unhappiness of princes who are slaves to forms and fettered by caution.”
—Elizabeth I (15331603)
