Famous quotes containing the words men and/or summer:
“The men are magnificentthe young men tall, well formed, and admirably dressed; the old men positively beautiful, with their fresh complexions, white hair, and admirable neatness. Nothing struck me more than this, and we might copy it to advantage here. As an Englishman grows older he becomes more and more careful in his dress.”
—M. E. W. Sherwood (18261903)
“The people of Western Europe are facing this summer a series of tragic dilemmas. Of the hopes that dazzled the last twenty years that some political movement might tend to the betterment of the human lot, little remains above ground but the tattered slogans of the past.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
