Famous quotes containing the words trains, high and/or speed:

    Ever notice how these European trains always smell of eau de cologne and hard boiled eggs?
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    Go on, high ship, since now, upon the shore,
    The snake has left its skin upon the floor.
    Key West sank downward under massive clouds
    And silvers and greens spread over the sea. The moon
    Is at the mast-head and the past is dead.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    If it be aught toward the general good,
    Set honor in one eye, and death i’th’ other,
    And I will look on both indifferently;
    For let the gods so speed me as I love
    The name of honor more than I fear death.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
