Town

A town is a human settlement larger than a village but smaller than a city. The size definition for what constitutes a "town" varies considerably in different parts of the world, so that, for example, many "small towns" in the United States would be regarded as villages in the United Kingdom, while many British "small towns" would qualify as cities in the United States.

Famous quotes containing the word town:

    And oh, I knew, I knew,
    And said out loud, I couldn’t bide the smother
    And heat so close in; but the thought of all
    The woods and town on fire by me, and all
    The town turned out to fight for me that held me.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I didn’t have any looks, I didn’t have any talent, and it was easy for me to say to the Lord, “I don’t have anything.” If you only knew where I came from ... this leetle-bitty town with no more than twelve hundred people in it. So ... anything I am today, He is the one who has done it [ellipses in source].
    Kathryn Kuhlman (1907–1976)

    A little instruction in the elements of chartography—a little practice in the use of the compass and the spirit level, a topographical map of the town common, an excursion with a road map—would have given me a fat round earth in place of my paper ghost.
    Mary Antin (1881–1949)
