Famous quotes containing the words train and/or railroad:

    Constant revolutionizing of production ... distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses, his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    This I saw when waking late,
    Going by at a railroad rate,
    Looking through wreaths of engine smoke
    Far into the lives of other folk.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
