Famous quotes containing the words west, midlands, bristol, road, bus and/or corridor:

    These were not men, they were battlefields. And over them, like the sky, arched their sense of harmony, their sense of beauty and rest against which their misery and their struggles were an offence, to which their misery and their struggles were the only approaches they could make, of which their misery and their struggles were an integral part.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Sunday night meant, in the dark, wintry, rainy Midlands ... anywhere where two creatures might stand and squeeze together and spoon.... Spooning was a fine art, whereas kissing and cuddling are calf-processes.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
    It tips the guard’s cutlass and silvers this nook;
    But ‘twill die in the dawning of Billy’s last day.
    A jewel-block they’ll make of me to-morrow,
    Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
    Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly—
    O, ‘tis me, not the sentence they’ll suspend.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    But, where the road runs near the stream,
    Oft through the trees they catch a glance
    Of passing troops in the sun’s beam—
    Pennon, and plume, and flashing lance!
    Forth to the world those soldiers fare,
    To life, to cities, and to war!
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    David: All the reporters are on the bus.
    Lucas: Okay, start the bus then. And drive them over a cliff.
    Jeremy Larner, U.S. screenwriter, and Michael Ritchie. David (Chris Prey)

    And now in one hour’s time I’ll be out there again. I’ll raise my eyes and look down that corridor four feet wide with ten lonely seconds to justify my whole existence.
    Colin Welland (b. 1934)
