Famous quotes containing the word villages:

    Instead of noblemen, let us have noble villages of men.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But I go with my friend to the shore of our little river, and with one stroke of the paddle, I leave the village politics and personalities, yes, and the world of villages and personalities behind, and pass into a delicate realm of sunset and moonlight, too bright almost for spotted man to enter without novitiate and probation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Glorious, stirring sight! The poetry of motion! The real way to travel! The only way to travel! Here today—in next week tomorrow! Villages skipped, towns and cities jumped—always somebody else’s horizon! O bliss! O poop-poop! O my! O my!
    Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932)
