Famous quotes containing the words cable car, car and/or cable:

    To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars.
    Douglass Cross (b. 1920)

    If a man, cautious,
    hides his limp,
    Somebody has to limp it! Things
    do it; the surroundings limp.
    House walls get scars,
    the car breaks down; matter, in drudgery, takes it up.
    Robert Bly (b. 1926)

    To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars.
    Douglass Cross (b. 1920)
