Neighborhood

Famous quotes containing the word neighborhood:

    [The] elderly and timid single gentleman in Paris ... never drove down the Champs Elysees without expecting an accident, and commonly witnessing one; or found himself in the neighborhood of an official without calculating the chances of a bomb. So long as the rates of progress held good, these bombs would double in force and number every ten years.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    I was born and raised in a neighborhood called Noah’s Ark. If you didn’t travel in pairs, you just didn’t travel.
    Stanley Shapiro (1925–1990)

    The style, the house and grounds, and “entertainment” pass for nothing with me. I called on the king, but he made me wait in his hall, and conducted like a man incapacitated for hospitality. There was a man in my neighborhood who lived in a hollow tree. His manners were truly regal. I should have done better had I called on him.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
