Famous quotes containing the words creek and/or upper:

    It might be seen by what tenure men held the earth. The smallest stream is mediterranean sea, a smaller ocean creek within the land, where men may steer by their farm bounds and cottage lights. For my own part, but for the geographers, I should hardly have known how large a portion of our globe is water, my life has chiefly passed within so deep a cove. Yet I have sometimes ventured as far as to the mouth of my Snug Harbor.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The stately Homes of England,
    How beautiful they stand,
    To prove the upper classes
    Have still the upper hand.
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)
