Famous quotes containing the words vessel, gas and/or motor:
“In clear weather the laziest may look across the Bay as far as Plymouth at a glance, or over the Atlantic as far as human vision reaches, merely raising his eyelids; or if he is too lazy to look after all, he can hardly help hearing the ceaseless dash and roar of the breakers. The restless ocean may at any moment cast up a whale or a wrecked vessel at your feet. All the reporters in the world, the most rapid stenographers, could not report the news it brings.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“one pale woman all alone,
The daylight kissing her wan hair,
Loitered beneath the gas lamps flare,
With lips of flame and heart of stone.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
“What shall we do with country quiet now?
A motor drones insanely in the blue
Like a bad bird in a dream.”
—Babette Deutsch (18951982)
