Famous quotes containing the words safe and/or mode:
“The yuppie idea of the future aint my idea of a future. Your safe car, and home, and job, and all the time rushing between the threelets make people feel they can grow up and have some education, some interest in life! Thats what counts!”
—Joe Strummer (b. 1952)
“Poor John Field!I trust he does not read this, unless he will improve by it,thinking to live by some derivative old-country mode in this primitive new country.... With his horizon all his own, yet he a poor man, born to be poor, with his inherited Irish poverty or poor life, his Adams grandmother and boggy ways, not to rise in this world, he nor his posterity, till their wading webbed bog-trotting feet get talaria to their heels.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
