Freight

Famous quotes containing the word freight:

    People that make puns are like wanton boys that put coppers on the railroad tracks. They amuse themselves and other children but their little trick may upset a freight train of conversation for the sake of a battered witticism.

    Admire a small ship, but put your freight in a large one; for the larger the load, the greater will be the profit upon profit.
