Famous quotes containing the words cities and/or garden:

    The city is always recruited from the country. The men in cities who are the centres of energy, the driving-wheels of trade, politics or practical arts, and the women of beauty and genius, are the children or grandchildren of farmers, and are spending the energies which their fathers’ hardy, silent life accumulated in frosty furrows in poverty, necessity and darkness.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There’s always the hyena of morality at the garden gate, and the real wolf at the end of the street.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
