Famous quotes containing the word miles:

    Solitude is not measured by the miles of space that intervene between a man and his fellows. The really diligent student in one of the crowded hives of Cambridge College is as solitary as a dervis in the desert.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    All the morning we had heard the sea roar on the eastern shore, which was several miles distant.... It was a very inspiriting sound to walk by, filling the whole air, that of the sea dashing against the land, heard several miles inland. Instead of having a dog to growl before your door, to have an Atlantic Ocean to growl for a whole Cape!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I dreamed of an out-thrust arm of land
    Where gulls blew over a wave
    That fell along miles of sand....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
