Famous quotes containing the words lines and/or city:

    When first my lines of heavenly joys made mention,
    Such was their luster, they did so excel,
    That I sought out quaint words and trim invention;
    My thoughts began to burnish, sprout, and swell,
    Curling with metaphors a plain intention,
    Decking the sense as if it were to sell.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)

    The City of New York is like an enormous citadel, a modern Carcassonne. Walking between the magnificent skyscrapers one feels the presence on the fringe of a howling, raging mob, a mob with empty bellies, a mob unshaven and in rags.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
