Danube Valley Railway

Famous quotes containing the words danube, valley and/or railway:

    The Danube to the Severn gave
    The darken’d heart that beat no more;
    They laid him by the pleasant shore,
    And in the hearing of the wave.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Jugful of milk! It was yours years ago
    when I lived in the valley of my bones,
    bones dumb in the swamp. Little playthings.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
