Quotes on Bicycling

 

Aries

In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism 'A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.' In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney. - Gloria Steinem in Time Magazine.

Taurus

The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets. - Christopher Morley

Gemini

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. - Arthur Conan Doyle

Cancer

The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart. - Iris Murdoch, The Red and the Green

Leo

Newspapers are unable, seemingly to discriminate between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilization. - George Bernard Shaw

Virgo

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race. - H. G. Wells

Libra

Bicycles are almost as good as guitars for meeting girls. - Bob Weir

Scorpio

Mankind has invested more than four million years of evolution in the attempt to avoid physical exertion. Now a group of backward-thinking atavists mounted on foot-powered pairs of Hula-Hoops would have us pumping our legs, gritting our teeth, and searing our lungs as though we were being chased across the Pleistocene savanna by saber-toothed tigers. Think of the hopes, the dreams, the effort, the brilliance, the pure force of will that, over the eons, has gone into the creation of the Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Bicycle riders would have us throw all this on the ash heap of history. - P.J. O'Rourke

Sagittarius

Life is like a 10 speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use. - C. Schultz

Capricorn

If all feeling for grace and beauty were not extinguished in the mass of mankind at the actual moment, such a method of locomotion as cycling could never have found acceptance; no man or woman with the slightest aesthetic sense could assume the ludicrous position necessary for it. - Ouida, The Ugliness of Modern Life, 1900

Aquarius

[Bicycling] has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammelled womanhood. - Susan B. Anthony

Pisces

Henry was about to leave on his bicycle, but with characteristic thoroughness he decided he must stay and get to the bottom of what I had written. He walked up and down the garden while I explained my abstractions. - Anais Nin
