Famous quotes containing the word whales:

    America loves the representation of its heroes to be not just larger than life, but stupendously, awesomely bigger than anything else. If blue whales built statues to each other they’d be smaller then these.
    Simon Hoggart (b. 1946)

    Though once there were more whales cast up here, I think that it was never more wild than now.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
