Famous quotes containing the word caravan:

    The dog barks, the caravan passes on.
    The words had a sort of bloom on them
    But were weightless, carrying past what was being said.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    As the Arab proverb says, “The dog barks and the caravan passes”. After having dropped this quotation, Mr. Norpois stopped to judge the effect it had on us. It was great; the proverb was known to us: it had been replaced that year among men of high worth by this other: “Whoever sows the wind reaps the storm”, which had needed some rest since it was not as indefatigable and hardy as, “Working for the King of Prussia”.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
