Famous quotes containing the words car, series and/or season:

    There are two modes of transport in Los Angeles: car and ambulance. Visitors who wish to remain inconspicuous are advised to choose the latter
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1951)

    I look on trade and every mechanical craft as education also. But let me discriminate what is precious herein. There is in each of these works an act of invention, an intellectual step, or short series of steps taken; that act or step is the spiritual act; all the rest is mere repetition of the same a thousand times.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Utterly frozen is this youthful lady,
    Even as the snow that lies within the shade;
    For she is no more moved than is the stone
    By the sweet season which makes warm the hills
    Dante Alighieri (1265–1321)
