Text Versions
In the carriages of the past, you can’t go anywhere  (Carriages Quotes) The apparent rulers of the English nation are like the imposing personages of a splendid procession: it is by them the mob are influenced; it is they whom the spectators cheer. The real rulers are secreted in second-rate carriages; no one cares for them or asks after them, but they are obeyed implicitly and unconsciously by reason of the splendor of those who eclipsed and preceded them  (Carriages Quotes) The best talk is artless, the talk of people trying to reassure or comfort themselves, women in the sun, grouped around baby carriages, talking about their weeks in the hospital or the way meat has gone up, or men in saloons, talking to combat the loneliness everyone feels.  (Carriages Quotes) If men refuse to be kindled, sparks can only burn themselves out, just as paper images and carriages burn out on the street during funerals.  (Carriages Quotes) Where they couldn’t pick holes in our arguments they would drive horses and carriages through my character  (Carriages Quotes) It was four o’clock when the ceremony was over and the carriages began to arrive  (Carriages Quotes) They change their sky, not their mind, who cross the sea. A busy idleness possesses us: we seek a happy life, with ships and carriages: The object of our search is present with us  (Carriages Quotes) I think that the dying pray at the last not please but thank you, as a guest thanks his host at the door. Falling from airplanes the people are crying thank you, thank you, all down the air; and the cold carriages draw up for them on the rocks  (Carriages Quotes) I’ve thought of doing many things in my life, under the influence of life, and I’ve never actually thought of straddling two carriages while they’re moving  (Carriages Quotes) Our babies cried when we left them and we cry when they leave us. Echoes. Proud almost to arrogance then, we pushed them about in their carriages. Dutifully, wearily now they push us about in our chairs  (Carriages Quotes) Why should the wealth of the country be stored in banks and elevators while the idle workman wanders homeless about the streets and the idle loafers who hoard the gold only to spend it on riotous living are rolling about in fine carriages from which they look out on peaceful meetings and call them riots?  (Carriages Quotes) Time can play all sorts of tricks on you. In the blink of an eye, babies appear in carriages, coffins disappear into the ground, wars are won and lost, and children transform, like butterflies, into adults  (Carriages Quotes) That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain’t I a woman?  (Carriages Quotes) When I was at school I used to scream in trains, in those concertina things between the carriages. I used to try to be so good that sometimes I couldn’t bear it any more  (Carriages Quotes) Whenever my patient begins to count the carriages in her funeral procession I subtract 50 per cent from the curative power of medicines  (Carriages Quotes) Of all the failed technologies that litter the onward march of science - steam carriages, zeppelins, armoured trains - none has been so catastrophic to prosperity as the last century’s attempt to generate electricity from nuclear fission.  (Carriages Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
