Famous quotes containing the words bridge and/or falls:

    Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it’s intimate and psychological—resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    The heart of a woman falls back with the night,
    And enters some alien cage in its plight,
    And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars,
    While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars.
    Georgia Douglas Johnson (1886–1966)
