Famous quotes containing the words scenic, river, state and/or park:

    Hence from scenic bacchanal,
    Preshrunk and droll prodigal!
    Smallness that you had to spend,
    Spent. Wench, whiskey and tail-end
    Of your overseas disease
    Rot and rout you by degrees.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    The murmurs of many a famous river on the other side of the globe reach even to us here, as to more distant dwellers on its banks; many a poet’s stream, floating the helms and shields of heroes on its bosom.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Deacon King was tried for violating the Sabbath, and so hot was the debate that it was referred to the church council, which ultimately decided, after long and grave debate, that the deacon had committed a ‘work of necessity and mercy.’
    —For the State of Massachusetts, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    and the words never said,
    And the ominous, ominous dancing ahead.
    We sat in the car park till twenty to one
    And now I’m engaged to Miss Joan Hunter Dunn.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)
