Famous quotes containing the word underground:

    It is in our interests to let the police and their employers go on believing that the Underground is a conspiracy, because it increases their paranoia and their inability to deal with what is really happening. As long as they look for ringleaders and documents they will miss their mark, which is that proportion of every personality which belongs in the Underground.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Or as, when an underground train, in the tube, stops too long between stations
    And the conversation rises and slowly fades into silence
    And you see behind every face the mental emptiness deepen
    Leaving only the growing terror of nothing to think about....
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    An underground grower, blind and a common brown;
    Got a misshapen look, it’s nudged where it could;
    Simple as soil yet crowded as earth with all.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
