Famous quotes containing the words latin america, passenger, traffic, america, busiest and/or latin:

    Americans living in Latin American countries are often more snobbish than the Latins themselves. The typical American has quite a bit of money by Latin American standards, and he rarely sees a countryman who doesn’t. An American businessman who would think nothing of being seen in a sport shirt on the streets of his home town will be shocked and offended at a suggestion that he appear in Rio de Janeiro, for instance, in anything but a coat and tie.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)

    Every American travelling in England gets his own individual sport out of the toy passenger and freight trains and the tiny locomotives, with their faint, indignant, tiny whistle. Especially in western England one wonders how the business of a nation can possibly be carried on by means so insufficient.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)

    Poems stirred
    into paper coffee-cups, eaten
    with petals on rye in the
    sun—the cold shadows in back,
    and the traffic grinding the
    borders of spring ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    In America the geography is sublime, but the men are not; the inventions are excellent, but the inventors one is sometimes ashamed of.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else—we are the busiest people in the world.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    There is no doubt that Greek and Latin are great and handsome ornaments, but we buy them too dear.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
