Spout Run

Spout Run is a small stream in Arlington County, Virginia.

Famous quotes containing the words run and/or spout:

    There is a doctrine uttered in secret that man is a prisoner who has no right to open the door of his prison and run away.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    “If my head hurt a hair’s foot
    Pack back the downed bone. If the unpricked ball of my breath
    Bump on a spout let the bubbles jump out....”
