Famous quotes containing the words maine and/or bar:

    These were such houses as the lumberers of Maine spend the winter in, in the wilderness ... the camps and the hovels for the cattle, hardly distinguishable, except that the latter had no chimney.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
