Famous quotes containing the word miles:

    I dreamed of an out-thrust arm of land
    Where gulls blew over a wave
    That fell along miles of sand....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Napoleon wanted to turn Paris into Rome under the Caesars, only with louder music and more marble. And it was done. His architects gave him the Arc de Triomphe and the Madeleine. His nephew Napoleon III wanted to turn Paris into Rome with Versailles piled on top, and it was done. His architects gave him the Paris Opera, an addition to the Louvre, and miles of new boulevards.
    Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)

    Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. ‘Tis pedantry to estimate nations by the census, or by square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
