Famous quotes containing the words centres and/or town:

    We all have—to put it as nicely as I can—our lower centres and our higher centres. Our lower centres act: they act with terrible power that sometimes destroys us; but they don’t talk.... Since the war the lower centres have become vocal. And the effect is that of an earthquake.

    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Samuel G. Engel (1904–1984)
