York State

Famous quotes containing the words york and/or state:

    Rome, like Washington, is small enough, quiet enough, for strong personal intimacies; Rome, like Washington, has its democratic court and its entourage of diplomatic circle; Rome, like Washington, gives you plenty of time and plenty of sunlight. In New York we have annihilated both.

    A ship is a bit of terra firma cut off from the main; it is a state in itself; and the captain is its king.
