Famous quotes containing the words roads and/or state:

    This, my first [bicycle] had an intrinsic beauty. And it opened for me an era of all but flying, which roads emptily crossing the airy, gold-gorsy Common enhanced. Nothing since has equalled that birdlike freedom.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
