Famous quotes containing the words station, coast, guard and/or air:

    It was evident that the same foolish respect was not here claimed for mere wealth and station that is in many parts of New England; yet some of them were the “first people,” as they are called, of the various towns through which we passed.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And ladies with their nails prepared for tea
    And sunken barques that coast the shores of hell
    And old men vacant of propriety
    Have faintly rung a next-door neighbor’s bell.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day catch you unexpectedly, like a trap.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 21:34.35.

    A slight daily unconscious luxury is hardly ever wanting to the dwellers in civilisation; like the gentle air of a genial climate, it is a perpetual minute enjoyment.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)
