Power Station Chimney

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

    Those who have been once intoxicated with power, and have derived any kind of emolument from it, even though but for one year, never can willingly abandon it. They may be distressed in the midst of all their power; but they will never look to anything but power for their relief.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    It was evident that the same foolish respect was not here claimed for mere wealth and station that is in many parts of New England; yet some of them were the “first people,” as they are called, of the various towns through which we passed.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Courtship was a serious business for the reason that everybody knew when a young couple began to ‘set up’ with each other. They could tell by the sparks flying from the chimney late at night.
    State of Indiana, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
