Famous quotes containing the word sewers:

    I counted two and seventy stenches,
    All well defined and several stinks!
    Ye Nymphs that reign o’er sewers and sinks,
    The river Rhine, it is well known,
    Doth wash your city of Cologne;
    But tell me, Nymphs! what power divine
    Shall henceforth wash the river Rhine?
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    I have misplaced the Van Allen belt
    the sewers and the drainage,
    the urban renewal and the suburban centers.
    I have forgotten the names of the literary critics.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
