Suburban

Famous quotes containing the word suburban:

    The car has become the carapace, the protective and aggressive shell, of urban and suburban man.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    More than illness or death, the American journalist fears standing alone against the whim of his owners or the prejudices of his audience. Deprive William Safire of the insignia of the New York Times, and he would have a hard time selling his truths to a weekly broadsheet in suburban Duluth.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)

    Back from that great-grandfather I have come
    to puzzle a bending gravestone for his sake,
    to question this diminishing and feed a minimum
    of children their careful slice of suburban cake.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
