Famous quotes containing the words traffic and/or freight:

    Too much traffic with a quotation book begets a conviction of ignorance in a sensitive reader. Not only is there a mass of quotable stuff he never quotes, but an even vaster realm of which he has never heard.
    Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    Man, she looked as though she’d been thrown off the crummiest freight train in the world. Yet, in spite of this, I got the impression of beauty. Not the beauty of a movie actress, mind you, or the beauty you dream about when you’re with your wife. But a natural beauty. A beauty that’s almost homely because it’s so real.
    Martin Goldsmith, and Edgar G. Ulmer. Al Roberts (Tom Neal)
