Famous quotes containing the words vermont, defendant and/or project:

    In order to get to East Russet you take the Vermont Central as far as Twitchell’s Falls and change there for Torpid River Junction, where a spur line takes you right into Gormley. At Gormley you are met by a buckboard which takes you back to Torpid River Junction again.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    My profession lent itself nicely to my vocation for heights. It freed me of any bitterness towards my fellow men, who were always in my debt, without my owing them anything. It placed me above the judge whom, I in turn judged, above the defendant whom I forced into gratitude.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Although I mean it, and project the meaning
    As hard as I can into its brushed-metal surface,
    It cannot, in this deteriorating climate, pick up
    Where I leave off.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
