Famous quotes containing the word miles:

    Natural law is only whatever happens in your lifetime within fifty miles of you.
    —“Marcy.” As quoted in The Girl I Left Behind, Introduction, by Jane O’Reilly (1980)

    Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. ‘Tis pedantry to estimate nations by the census, or by square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I skirted the margin alders for miles and miles
    In a sweeping line.
    The day was the day by every flower that blooms,
    But I saw no sign.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
