Filling Station Selling

Famous quotes containing the words filling station, filling, station and/or selling:

    Oh, but it is dirty!
    Mthis little filling station,
    oil-soaked, oil-permeated
    to a disturbing, over-all
    black translucency.
    Be careful with that match!
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)

    Religious faith is a most filling vapor.
    It swirls occluded in us under tight
    Compression to uplift us out of weight....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    [T]here is no situation so deplorable ... as that of a gentlewoman in real poverty.... Birth, family, and education become misfortunes when we cannot attain some means of supporting ourselves in the station they throw us into. Our friends and former acquaintances look on it as a disgrace to own us.... If we were to attempt getting our living by any trade, people in that station would think we were endeavoring to take their bread out of their mouths.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    The only person really soiled with trade
    I ever stumbled on in old New Hampshire
    Was someone who had just come back ashamed
    From selling things in California.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
