Quarter Mile

Famous quotes containing the words quarter and/or mile:

    I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    smile
    As you find a rhythm
    Working you, slow mile by mile,
    Into your proper haunt
    Somewhere, well out, beyond . . .
    Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
