Famous quotes containing the word miles:
“Said, All you needed to do was just explain;
Reason Reason is my middle name.”
—Josephine Miles (19111985)
“Three miles long and two streets wide, the town curls around the bay ... a gaudy run with Mediterranean splashes of color, crowded steep-pitched roofs, fishing piers and fishing boats whose stench of mackerel and gasoline is as aphrodisiac to the sensuous nose as the clean bar-whisky smell of a nightclub where call girls congregate.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
“And my spirit is grown to a lordly great compass within,
That the length and the breadth and the sweep of the marshes of
Will work me no fear like the fear they have wrought me of yore
When length was failure, and when breadth was but bitterness sore,
And when terror and shrinking and dreary unnamable pain
Drew over me out of the merciless miles of the plain,
Oh, now, unafraid, I am fain to face
The vast sweet visage of space.”
—Sidney Lanier (18421881)
