Famous quotes containing the words motors, rail and/or steam:

    When General Motors has to go to the bathroom ten times a day, the whole country’s ready to let go. You heard of that market crash in ‘29? I predicted that....

    Puffing as you climb, you are a brown woodcut
    stooped over the thin rail and the wornout tread.
