Famous quotes containing the word pullman:

    If you find that you can’t make seventy by any but an uncomfortable road, don’t you go. When they take off the Pullman and retire you to the rancid smoker, put off your things, count your checks, and get out at the first way station where there’s a cemetery.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
