4th Line Road (Ottawa Road #5) is a designated arterial road in the rural portion of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The street follows one of the meridian lines first laid out when Carleton County was surveyed. It begins southeast of Richmond, Ontario at Brophy Drive, and runs southeast until it hits the Rideau River, where it turns into Donnelly Drive near Rideau River Provincial Park. 4th Line Road passes through the heart of North Gower, Ontario, and when in that town is known as "Main Street." The road runs just to the west of Highway 416, which is the more important north-south route.
Famous quotes containing the words road and/or line:
“Evil can be got very easily and exists in quantity: the road to her is very smooth, and she lives near by. But between us and virtue the gods have placed the sweat of our brows; the road to her is long and steep, and it is rough at first; but when a man has reached the top, then she is easy to attain, although before she was hard.”
—Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
“Experience has taught me, when I am shaving of a morning, to keep watch over my thoughts, because, if a line of poetry strays into my memory, my skin bristles so that the razor ceases to act.”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
