Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline

Famous quotes containing the words southern, star, central, gas and/or pipeline:

    I sometimes wonder that we can be so frivolous ... as to attend to the gross but somewhat foreign form of servitude called Negro Slavery, there are so many keen and subtle masters that enslave both north and south. It is hard to have a southern overseer; it is worse to have a northern one; but worst of all when you are the slave-driver of yourself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Fear not: that ultimate Star is frail,
    only a flake of snow,
    whirled in His breath.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Parental attitudes have greater correlation with pupil achievement than material home circumstances or variations in school and classroom organization, instructional materials, and particular teaching practices.
    —Children and Their Primary Schools, vol. 1, ch. 3, Central Advisory Council for Education, London (1967)

    ... when I awake in the middle of the night, since I knew not where I was, I did not even know at first who I was; I only had in the first simplicity the feeling of existing as it must quiver in an animal.... I spent one second above the centuries of civilization, and the confused glimpse of the gas lamps, then of the shirts with turned-down collars, recomposed, little by little, the original lines of my self.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Even in the pink crib
    the somehow deficient,
    the somehow maimed,
    are thought to have
    a special pipeline to the mystical....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
