Suburbs

Famous quotes containing the word suburbs:

    In an expanding universe, time is on the side of the outcast. Those who once inhabited the suburbs of human contempt find that without changing their address they eventually live in the metropolis.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    The system was breaking down. The one who had wandered alone past so many happenings and events began to feel, backing up along the primal vein that led to his center, the beginning of hiccup that would, if left to gather, explode the center to the extremities of life, the suburbs through which one makes one’s way to where the country is.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Slums may well be breeding-grounds of crime, but middle-class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)
