Famous quotes containing the words single track, track and/or single:

    It may seem strange that any road through such a wilderness should be passable, even in winter, when the snow is three or four feet deep, but at that season, wherever lumbering operations are actively carried on, teams are continually passing on the single track, and it becomes as smooth almost as a railway.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What joy when the insouciant
    armadillo glances at us and doesn’t
    quicken his trotting
    across the track into the palm brush.
    What is this joy? That no animal
    falters, but knows what it must do?
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical,
    Shakes so my single state of man,
    That function is smothered in surmise,
    And nothing is but what is not.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
