Tumbling Creek

Famous quotes containing the words tumbling and/or creek:

    Sweeping from butcher’s stalls, dung, guts, and blood,
    Drown’d puppies, stinking sprats, all drench’d in mud,
    Dead cats, and turnip-tops, come tumbling down the flood.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    The only law was that enforced by the Creek Lighthorsemen and the U.S. deputy marshals who paid rare and brief visits; or the “two volumes of common law” that every man carried strapped to his thighs.
    State of Oklahoma, U.S. relief program (1935-1943)
