Famous quotes containing the words island and/or rock:

    We approached the Indian Island through the narrow strait called “Cook.” He said, “I ‘xpect we take in some water there, river so high,—never see it so high at this season. Very rough water there, but short; swamp steamboat once. Don’t paddle till I tell you, then you paddle right along.” It was a very short rapid. When we were in the midst of it he shouted “paddle,” and we shot through without taking in a drop.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    No change in musical style will survive unless it is accompanied by a change in clothing style. Rock is to dress up to.
    Frank Zappa (1940–1994)
