A Sailor From York

Famous quotes containing the words york and/or sailor:

    New York has never learnt the art of growing old by playing on all its pasts. Its present invents itself, from hour to hour, in the act of throwing away its previous accomplishments and challenging the future. A city composed of paroxysmal places in monumental reliefs.
    Michel de Certeau (1925–1986)

    The soger frae the wars returns,
    The sailor frae the main,
    But I hae parted frae my Love,
    Never to meet again, my dear,
    Never to meet again.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
