Motorcycle Land Speed

Famous quotes containing the words motorcycle, land and/or speed:

    Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    How much better when the whole land is a garden, and the people have grown up in the bowers of a paradise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The terror of the atom age is not the violence of the new power but the speed of man’s adjustment to it—the speed of his acceptance.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)
