Famous quotes containing the words city and/or mexico:

    London ... remains a man’s city where New York is chiefly a woman’s. London has whole streets that cater to men’s wants. It has its great solid phalanx of fortress clubs.
    Louis Kronenberger (1904–1980)

    Is this what all these soldiers, all this training, have been for these seventy-nine years past? Have they been trained merely to rob Mexico and carry back fugitive slaves to their masters?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
