Famous quotes containing the words northern, pipeline, marathon, pipe and/or line:

    Our ancestors were savages. The story of Romulus and Remus being suckled by a wolf is not a meaningless fable. The founders of every state which has risen to eminence have drawn their nourishment and vigor from a similar wild source. It was because the children of the Empire were not suckled by the wolf that they were conquered and displaced by the children of the northern forests who were.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Even in the pink crib
    the somehow deficient,
    the somehow maimed,
    are thought to have
    a special pipeline to the mystical....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)

    All I’m telling you is that that little creature in there has as much right to live as you do. Don’t forget, you invaded his world. You sank a pipe six miles into the ground and when he climbed up you set dogs on him, shot him.
    Richard Fielding, and Lee Sholem. Superman (George Reeves)

    Too many girls follow the line of least resistance—but a good line is hard to resist.
    Raoul Walsh, U.S. screenwriter. Frisco Doll (Mae West)
