Famous quotes containing the words centre and/or town:
“The bogholes might be Atlantic seepage.
The wet centre is bottomless.”
—Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
“Let no one think that I do not love the old ministers. They were, probably, the best men in their generation, and they deserve that their biographies should fill the pages of the town histories. If I could but hear the glad tidings of which they tell, and which, perchance, they heard, I might write in a worthier strain than this.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
