Famous quotes containing the words district, health, beach and/or cities:

    Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    But from the good health of the mind comes that which is dear to all and the object of prayer—happiness.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    A young person is a person with nothing to learn
    One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
    It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
    day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
    And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
    without running a nail in its feet. . . .
    Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
    Writing that the young are ones’ should not
    undermine the self-confidence of which.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    An architect should live as little in cities as a painter. Send him to our hills, and let him study there what nature understands by a buttress, and what by a dome.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)
