    Little Boy Blue,
    Come blow your horn,
    Mother Goose (fl. 17th–18th century. Little Boy Blue (l. 1–2)

    One way to do it might be by making the scenery penetrate the automobile. A polished black sedan was a good subject, especially if parked at the intersection of a tree-bordered street and one of those heavyish spring skies whose bloated gray clouds and amoeba-shaped blotches of blue seem more physical than the reticent elms and effusive pavement. Now break the body of the car into separate curves and panels; then put it together in terms of reflections.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    So here they are, the dog-faced soldiers, the regulars, the fifty-cents-a-day professionals riding the outposts of the nation, from Fort Reno to Fort Apache, from Sheridan to Stark.

But wherever they rode and whatever they fought for, that place became the United States.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
