North Pleasant Street

Famous quotes containing the words north, pleasant and/or street:

    There are no whole truths; all truths are half-truths. It is trying to treat them as whole truths that plays the devil.
    —Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)

    He gains everyone’s approval who mixes the pleasant with the useful.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8 B.C.)

    If the street life, not the Whitechapel street life, but that of the common but so-called respectable part of town is in any city more gloomy, more ugly, more grimy, more cruel than in London, I certainly don’t care to see it. Sometimes it occurs to one that possibly all the failures of this generation, the world over, have been suddenly swept into London, for the streets are a restless, breathing, malodorous pageant of the seedy of all nations.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)
