Jiro Ono serves Edo-style traditional sushi, the same 20 or 30 pieces he’s been making his whole life, and he’s still unsatisfied with the quality and every day wakes up and trains to make the best. And that is as close to a religious experience in food as one is likely to get.

Katherine Boo
Frustration with the trains is inevitable, given the daily difficulties commuters face.

Jazz, to me, is one of the inherent expressions of Negro life in America: the eternal tom-tom beating in the Negro soul – the tom-tom of revolt against weariness in a white world, a world of subway trains, and work, work, work; the tom-tom of joy and laughter, and pain swallowed in a smile.
Langston Hughes
Nobody trains ‘eye poke defense.’
Glover Teixeira

There’s a big link between trains and film. One of the first filmed objects was a train. The clickety-clack of the projector and the clickety-clack of the train are similar. There is the idea of the voyage – every voyage is a story. I wonder if film would have been invented without the train.

Some people are born to trains, and some have trains thrust upon them. Fortunately, I can be included in this latter category.

Peter Gabriel
I’m training like an animal. Nobody trains harder than me.

Rostam Batmanglij
‘Green’ cannot be allowed to become an excuse for stealth taxes. And nor should ‘green taxes’ be about punishment. Instead, they should represent a switch of emphasis. So if domestic flights are taxed, it should be on the absolute condition that the money is ploughed into improving the alternatives, such as trains.
Zac Goldsmith
In my class – in all fifth-grade classes – we were required to read ‘classics,’ books like ‘Shiloh,’ which is about a white boy and the dog he rescues.

David Karp
My yoga mat comes everywhere. Keeps me stretched out after sitting still on all those planes, trains and road journeys.

Susanna Clarke
During the morning rush hour on March 20, 1995, the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo placed packages on five subway trains converging on Tokyo’s central station. When punctured, the packages spread vaporized Sarin through the subway cars and then into the stations as the trains pulled in.
