Famous quotes containing the words travelling and/or train:

    You had been travelling for days
    With an old lady, who marked
    A neat circle on the glass
    With her glove, to watch us
    Move into the wet darkness
    Kissing, still unable to speak.
    John Montague (b. 1929)

    We teach boys to be such men as we are. We do not teach them to aspire to be all they can. We do not give them a training as if we believed in their noble nature. We scarce educate their bodies. We do not train the eye and the hand. We exercise their understandings to the apprehension and comparison of some facts, to a skill in numbers, in words; we aim to make accountants, attorneys, engineers; but not to make able, earnest, great- hearted men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
