Mile Semi Banked

Famous quotes containing the words mile and/or banked:

    I have got enough of the old masters! Brown says he has “shook” them, and I think I will shake them, too. You wander through a mile of picture galleries and stare stupidly at ghastly old nightmares done in lampblack and lightning, and listen to the ecstatic encomiums of the guides, and try to get up some enthusiasm, but it won’t come.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The winter owl banked just in time to pass
    And save herself from breaking window glass.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
