Town

A town is a human settlement larger than a village but smaller than a city. The size definition for what constitutes a "town" varies considerably in different parts of the world, so that, for example, many "small towns" in the United States would be regarded as villages in the United Kingdom, while many British "small towns" would qualify as cities in the United States.

Famous quotes containing the word town:

    That’s a sucker game, Doc. There’s probably fifty fellows around town just waitin’ to see you get liquored up, so they can fill ya full of holes. Build themselves up a great reputation—the man that killed Doc Holliday.
    Samuel G. Engel (1904–1984)

    A blessing through the ages thus
    Shield all thy roofs and towers!
    God with the fathers, so with us,
    Thou darling town of ours!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    O little town of Bethlehem,
    How still we see thee lie!
    Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
    The silent stars go by;
    Yet in thy dark streets shineth
    The Everlasting Light;
    The hopes and fears of all the years
    Are met in thee tonight.
    Phillips Brooks (1835–1893)
