Famous quotes containing the word city:
“Here far from the city we make our roadside stand
And ask for some city money to feel in hand
To try if it will not make our being expand,
And give us the life of the moving-pictures promise
That the party in power is said to be keeping from us.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“The farmhouse lingers, though averse to square
With the new city street it has to wear
A number in. But what about the brook
That held the house as in an elbow-crook?”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
