Famous quotes containing the word car:

    The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old- fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom. In terms of pollution, noise and human life, the price of that freedom may be high, but perhaps the car, by the very muddle and confusion it causes, may be holding back the remorseless spread of the regimented, electronic society.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    When a man opens the car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.
    Prince Philip (b. 1921)

    If a man, cautious,
    hides his limp,
    Somebody has to limp it! Things
    do it; the surroundings limp.
    House walls get scars,
    the car breaks down; matter, in drudgery, takes it up.
    Robert Bly (b. 1926)
