1987 Mieczys��aw Po��ukard Criterium of Polish Speedway Leagues Aces

Famous quotes containing the words polish, speedway and/or leagues:

    The total and universal want of manners, both in males and females, is ... remarkable ... that polish which removes the coarser and rougher parts of our nature is unknown and undreamed of.
    Frances Trollope (1780–1863)

    The improved American highway system ... isolated the American-in-transit. On his speedway ... he had no contact with the towns which he by-passed. If he stopped for food or gas, he was served no local fare or local fuel, but had one of Howard Johnson’s nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon. This vast ocean of superhighways was nearly as free of culture as the sea traversed by the Mayflower Pilgrims.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    Struck in the wet mire
    Four thousand leagues from the ninth buried city
    I thought of Troy, what we had built her for.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
