The New England Image

"There's little question that Vermont (particularly Vermont), Maine, Boston, and Cape Cod, are, together, responsible for the New England image. New Hampshire just doesn't fit in." ---Judson Hale, Sr.

Weather and the Seasons

"One of the brightest gems in the New England weather is the dazzling uncertainty of it." ---Mark Twain

New England Character

"There is nothing a New-Englander so nearly worships as an argument." ---Henry Ward Beecher

Yankee Humor

"How many Vermonters does it take to change a lightbulb?" "Three. One to change it and two to argue over why the old one was better." ---Vermont joke

The Educated Yankee

"Gentlemen, you are about to play football for Yale against Harvard. Never in your lives will you ever do anything as important." ---Yale football coach T. A. D. Jones

The New England Landscape

"New Hampshire is one big forest." ---Bill Bryson

Boston

"In New York, the women walk as though in the rain; in Boston, many women stroll." ---Andr Dubus

Yankee Cooking

"Every New England girl who lived within sound of the sea, four or five generations ago, counted a chowder kettle as an essential part of her 'setting out.'" ---Ella Shannon Bowles and Dorothy S. Towle

Sense of Place

"Vermont is my birthright. People there are happy and content. They belong to themselves, live within their income, and fear no man." ---Calvin Coolidge
