Famous quotes containing the words street and/or state:
“The sturdy Irish arms that do the work are of more worth than oak or maple. Methinks I could look with equanimity upon a long street of Irish cabins, and pigs and children reveling in the genial Concord dirt; and I should still find my Walden Wood and Fair Haven in their tanned and happy faces.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I met a traveler from Arkansas
Who boasted of his state as beautiful
For diamonds and apples.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
