Level Crossing Accident

Famous quotes containing the words level, crossing and/or accident:

    It may be well to remember that the highest level of moral aspiration recorded in history was reached by a few ancient Jews—Micah, Isaiah, and the rest—who took no count whatever of what might not happen to them after death. It is not obvious to me why the same point should not by and by be reached by the Gentiles.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    This was charming, no doubt: but they shortly found out
    That the Captain they trusted so well
    Had only one notion for crossing the ocean,
    And that was to tingle his bell.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    It wasn’t by accident that the Gettysburg address was so short. The laws of prose writing are as immutable as those of flight, of mathematics, of physics.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
