Power Station Chimney

Famous quotes containing the words power, station and/or chimney:

    We have heard all of our lives how, after the Civil War was over, the South went back to straighten itself out and make a living again. It was for many years a voiceless part of the government. The balance of power moved away from it—to the north and the east. The problems of the north and the east became the big problem of the country and nobody paid much attention to the economic unbalance the South had left as its only choice.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    I introduced her to Elena, and in that life-quickening atmosphere of a big railway station where everything is something trembling on the brink of something else, thus to be clutched and cherished, the exchange of a few words was enough to enable two totally dissimilar women to start calling each other by their pet names the very next time they met.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Now he sings of Jacky Horner,
    Sitting in the chimney corner,
    Eating of a Christmas pie,
    Putting in his thumb, O fie!
    Putting in, O fie! his thumb,
    Pulling out, O strange, a plum.
    Henry Carey (1693?–1743)
