Rivers

Famous quotes containing the word rivers:

    I remember once dreaming of pushing a canoe up the rivers of Maine, and that, when I had got so high that the channels were dry, I kept on through the ravines and gorges, nearly as well as before, by pushing a little harder, and now it seemed to me that my dream was partially realized.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Thank God we’re living in a country where the sky’s the limit, the stores are open late and you can shop in bed thanks to television.
    —Joan Rivers (b. 1935)

    If there’s water in the big rivers, the small rivers will be full.
