Infested Soil

Famous quotes containing the words infested and/or soil:

    It’s not enough to be great, Charley. I tried to tell you in Philly. I tried to tell you in L.A. We’re infested with rats! [to Peg, Charley’s fiancee] He’s not just a kid who can fight, he’s money! And people want money so bad they make it stink!
    Abraham Polonsky (b. 1910)

    Our own country furnishes antiquities as ancient and durable, and as useful, as any; rocks at least as well covered with lichens, and a soil which, if it is virgin, is but virgin mould, the very dust of nature. What if we cannot read Rome or Greece, Etruria or Carthage, or Egypt or Babylon, on these; are our cliffs bare?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
