Famous quotes containing the words hall, fame, sports, bay and/or area:

    Chipmunks jump, and
    Greensnakes slither.
    Rather burst than
    Not be with her.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)

    Fame sometimes hath created something out of nothing. She hath made whole countries more than nature ever did, especially near the poles, and then hath peopled them likewise with inhabitants of her own invention, pigmies, giants, and amazons: yea, fame is sometimes like unto a mushroom, which Pliny recounts to be the greatest miracle in nature, because growing and having no root, as fame no ground of her reports.
    Thomas Fuller (1608–1661)

    Falling in love is the right adventure for those who dislike sports and travel.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him,
    Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
    Over the chained bay waters Liberty—
    Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    Prestige is the shadow of money and power. Where these are, there it is. Like the national market for soap or automobiles and the enlarged arena of federal power, the national cash-in area for prestige has grown, slowly being consolidated into a truly national system.
    C. Wright Mills (1916–1962)
