Famous quotes containing the words riding and/or east:

    Commuter—one who spends his life
    In riding to and from his wife;
    A man who shaves and takes a train,
    And then rides back to shave again.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    Sublime tobacco! which from east to west
    Cheers the tar’s labour or the Turkman’s rest.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
