Famous quotes containing the words station, force, clear and/or air:

    How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn’t love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    Mine ear is much enamoured of thy note;
    So is mine eye enthrall├Ęd to thy shape;
    And thy fair virtue’s force perforce doth move me
    On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Lord, I have loved Your sky,
    Be it said against or for me,
    Have loved it clear and high,
    Or low and stormy....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The nonchalance and dolce-far-niente air of nature and society hint at infinite periods in the progress of mankind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
