Famous quotes containing the words cape, town and/or rifles:

    Wishing to get a better view than I had yet had of the ocean, which, we are told, covers more than two thirds of the globe, but of which a man who lives a few miles inland may never see any trace, more than of another world, I made a visit to Cape Cod.... But having come so fresh to the sea, I have got but little salted.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I’m shakin’ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world.
    Frances Goodrich (1891–1984)

    Oh, God, why do they do this to us? We only wanted to live, you and I. Why should they send us out to fight each other? If we threw away these rifles and these uniforms, you could be my brother.
    Maxwell Anderson (1888–1959)
