Floating Cities

Famous quotes containing the words floating and/or cities:

    Gradually the village murmur subsided, and we seemed to be embarked on the placid current of our dreams, floating from past to future as silently as one awakes to fresh morning or evening thoughts.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    London, thou art of townes A per se.
    Soveraign of cities, semeliest in sight,
    Of high renoun, riches, and royaltie;
    Of lordis, barons, and many goodly knyght;
    Of most delectable lusty ladies bright;
    Of famous prelatis in habitis clericall;
    Of merchauntis full of substaunce and myght:
    London, thou art the flour of Cities all
    William Dunbar (c. 1465–c. 1530)
