Port Town

Famous quotes containing the words port and/or town:

    In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Hain’t we got all the fools in town on our side? and ain’t that a big enough majority in any town?
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
