Famous quotes containing the word streets:

    It is a very true and expressive phrase, “He looked daggers at me,” for the first pattern and prototype of all daggers must have been a glance of the eye.... It is wonderful how we get about the streets without being wounded by these delicate and glancing weapons, a man can so nimbly whip out his rapier, or without being noticed carry it unsheathed. Yet it is rare that one gets seriously looked at.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You can always tell a Midwestern couple in Europe because they will be standing in the middle of a busy intersection looking at a wind-blown map and arguing over which way is west. European cities, with their wandering streets and undisciplined alleys, drive Midwesterners practically insane.
    Bill Bryson (b. 1951)

    On the day that will always belong to you,
    lunar clockwork had faltered
    and I was certain. Walking
    the streets of Manhattan I thought:
    Remember this day. I felt already
    like an urn, filling with wine.
    Rita Dove (b. 1952)
