East Garden City

Famous quotes containing the words city, east and/or garden:

    What life is best?
    Courts are but only superficial schools
    To dandle fools:
    The rural parts are turned into a den
    Of savage men:
    And where ‘s a city from all vice so free,
    But may be termed the worst of all the three?
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

    An inexperienced heraldist resembles a medieval traveler who brings back from the East the faunal fantasies influenced by the domestic bestiary he possessed all along rather than by the results of direct zoological exploration.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The city mouse lives in a house;—
    The garden mouse lives in a bower,
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
