Famous quotes containing the words york, city and/or marathon:

    The gay world that flourished in the half-century between 1890 and the beginning of the Second World War, a highly visible, remarkably complex, and continually changing gay male world, took shape in New York City.... It is not supposed to have existed.
    George Chauncey, U.S. educator, author. Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940, p. 1, Basic Books (1994)

    The City is of Night, but not of Sleep;
    There sweet sleep is not for the weary brain;
    The pitiless hours like years and ages creep,
    James Thomson (1834–1882)

    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)
