Famous quotes containing the words italy and/or northern:

    When intimacy followed love in Italy there were no longer any vain pretensions between two lovers.

This was the prevailing bird in the northern part of Maine. The forest generally was alive with them at this season, and they were proportionally numerous and musical about Bangor. They evidently breed in that State.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
