Famous quotes containing the words car and/or freight:

    The car has become the carapace, the protective and aggressive shell, of urban and suburban man.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    Man, she looked as though she’d been thrown off the crummiest freight train in the world. Yet, in spite of this, I got the impression of beauty.

    Martin Goldsmith, and Edgar G. Ulmer. Al Roberts (Tom Neal)
