Famous quotes containing the words orton and/or water:

    You were born with your legs apart. They’ll send you to the grave in a Y-shaped coffin.
    —Joe Orton (1933–1967)

    Instead of water we got here a draught of beer,... a lumberer’s drink, which would acclimate and naturalize a man at once,—which would make him see green, and, if he slept, dream that he heard the wind sough among the pines.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
