Level Crossing Disaster

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

    To punish drug takers is like a drunk striking the bleary face it sees in the mirror. Drugs will not be brought under control until society itself changes, enabling men to use them as primitive man did: welcoming the visions they provided not as fantasies, but as intimations of a different, and important, level of reality.
    Brian Inglis (b. 1916)

    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)

    Therefore it was surprising that, as we kept the newspapers from
    Mother,
    She died feeling responsible for a disaster unverified,
    Murmuring, in her sleep as it seemed, the ancient slogan
    Noblesse oblige.
    Josephine Miles (1911–1985)
