Famous quotes containing the words station and/or air:

    I introduced her to Elena, and in that life-quickening atmosphere of a big railway station where everything is something trembling on the brink of something else, thus to be clutched and cherished, the exchange of a few words was enough to enable two totally dissimilar women to start calling each other by their pet names the very next time they met.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Only the gaunt fierce bird
    Flies, merciless with fear
    Lest air hold him not,
    Beats up the scaffold of space
    Sick of the world’s rot
    God’s hideous face.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
