A town is a human settlement larger than a village but smaller than a city. The size definition for what constitutes a "town" varies considerably in different parts of the world, so that, for example, many "small towns" in the United States would be regarded as villages in the United Kingdom, while many British "small towns" would qualify as cities in the United States.
Famous quotes containing the word town:
“Im shakin the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and Im gonna see the world.”
—Frances Goodrich (18911984)
“Let no one think that I do not love the old ministers. They were, probably, the best men in their generation, and they deserve that their biographies should fill the pages of the town histories. If I could but hear the glad tidings of which they tell, and which, perchance, they heard, I might write in a worthier strain than this.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
