Famous quotes containing the words village and/or water:

    There were those young men,
    those village lands
    and that youthfulness of mine.
    People tell it
    like a tale
    that I must listen to.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

Its standard was excess, and its doctrines were tolerance and freedom from accountability.
    New Yorker (April 23, 1990)
