What is motor lodge?

Famous quotes containing the words motor and/or lodge:

    The motor idles.
    Over the immense upland
    the pulse of their blossoming
    thunders through us.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Who should come to my lodge this morning but a true Homeric or Paphlagonian man,—he had so suitable and poetic a name that I am sorry I cannot print it here,—a Canadian, a woodchopper and post-maker, who can hole fifty posts in a day, who made his last supper on a woodchuck which his dog caught.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
