Famous quotes containing the word miles:

    Fruits are acceptable gifts, because they are the flower of commodities, and admit of fantastic values being attached to them. If a man should send to me to come a hundred miles to visit him, and should set before me a basket of fine summer-fruit, I should think there was some proportion between the labor and the reward.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All the morning we had heard the sea roar on the eastern shore, which was several miles distant.... It was a very inspiriting sound to walk by, filling the whole air, that of the sea dashing against the land, heard several miles inland. Instead of having a dog to growl before your door, to have an Atlantic Ocean to growl for a whole Cape!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Isn’t it god’s own image? tramping his thirty miles a day
    after partridges, or a little rubber ball?
    wouldn’t you like to be like that, well off, and quite the thing?
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
