Famous quotes containing the words malls and/or strip:

    The figured wheel rolls through shopping malls and prisons,
    Over farms, small and immense, and the rotten little downtowns.
    Robert Pinsky (b. 1940)

    Perfect present has no existence in our consciousness. As I said years ago in Erewhon, it lives but upon the sufferance of past and future. We are like men standing on a narrow footbridge over a railway. We can watch the future hurrying like an express train towards us, and then hurrying into the past, but in the narrow strip of present we cannot see it. Strange that that which is the most essential to our consciousness should be exactly that of which we are least definitely conscious.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
