James Buffington Fall River

Famous quotes containing the words river, fall and/or james:

    You scour the Bowery, ransack the Bronx,
    Through funeral parlors and honky-tonks.
    From river to river you comb the town
    For a place to lay your family down.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    As the end of the century approaches, all our culture is like the culture of flies at the beginning of winter. Having lost their agility, dreamy and demented, they turn slowly about the window in the first icy mists of morning. They give themselves a last wash and brush-up, their ocellated eyes roll, and they fall down the curtains.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
    —Charles James Fox (1749–1806)
