Quotes

From Wikiquote

The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise. ~ Miguel de Cervantes
The phoenix (Ancient Greek: Φοῖνιξ, phoínix) is a mythical sacred firebird which dies in flames and is reborn from the ashes. These quotes refer to the mythical phoenix.

Sourced

Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix. ~ Christina Baldwin
Ask me no more if east or west
The Phoenix builds her spicy nest;
For unto you at last she flies,
And in your fragrant bosom dies. ~ Thomas Carew
That proud look as though she had gazed into the burning sun,
And all the shapely body no tittle gone astray.
I mourn for that most lonely thing; and yet God's will be done:
I knew a phoenix in my youth, so let them have their day. ~ W. B. Yeats
  • Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
  • First in the ranks see Joan of Arc advance,
    The scourge of England and the boast of France!
    Though burnt by wicked Bedford for a witch,
    Behold her statue plac'd in glory's niche;
    Her fetters burst, and just releas'd from prison,
    A virgin phoenix from her ashes risen.
    • Lord Byron, in English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809)
  • When fame's loud trump hath blown its noblest blast,
    Though long the sound, the echo sleeps at last;
    And glory, like the phoenix midst her fires,
    Exhales her odours, blazes, and expires.
    • Lord Byron, in English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809)
  • Ask me no more if east or west
    The Phoenix builds her spicy nest;
    For unto you at last she flies,
    And in your fragrant bosom dies.
  • The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.
    • Miguel de Cervantes, as quoted in The Book of the Bizarre: Freaky Facts & Strange Stories (2008) by Varla Ventura, p. 46
  • There is another holy bird, called the Phoenix, which I have never seen but in pictures. He rarely appears in Egypt — only once in every 500 years, so they say, in Heliopolis — and he is supposed to come when his father dies. If the painter describes him truly, his plumage is part golden and part red, and he is very like an eagle in shape and size. They say that this bird comes from Arabia, bringing the body of his father embalmed in myrrh to the temple of the sun, and there he buries him. First he molds an egg of myrrh; then he puts his father in the middle of it. Lastly, he covers up the body with myrrh. This is what they say this bird does. But I do not believe them.
  • A chattering crow lives out nine generations of aged men,
    but a stag's life is four time a crow's,
    and a raven's life makes three stags old,
    while the phoenix outlives nine ravens,
    but we, the rich-haired Nymphs
    daughters of Zeus the aegis-holder,
    outlive ten phoenixes.
    • Hesiod, in The Precepts of Chiron
  • Do not expect again a phoenix hour,
    The triple-towered sky, the dove complaining,
    Sudden the rain of gold and heart's first ease
    Traced under trees by the eldritch light of sundown.
  • Hurry! We burn
    For Rome’s so near us, for the phoenix moment
    When we have thrown off this traveller’s trance
    And mother-naked and ageless-ancient
    Wake in her warm nest of renaissance.
  • My mom was a phoenix who always expected to rise again from the ashes of her latest disaster. And in spite of her self-doubts, she had a very strong sense of who she was. She had a sense of self-worth. She loved being Judy Garland. Did she secretly long to be Frances Gumm Somebody, Minnesota housewife? Are you kidding? She'd have run off with a vaudeville troupe just the way my grandfather did.
    • Lorna Luft, in Me and My Shadows : A Family Memoir (1999), p. 222
    • Also paraphrased as: "My mother was a phoenix who always expected to rise from the ashes of her latest disaster. She loved being Judy Garland."
  • Most beings spring from other individuals; but there is a certain kind which reproduces itself. The Assyrians call it the Phoenix. It does not live on fruit or flowers, but on frankincense and odoriferous gums. When it has lived five hundred years, it builds itself a nest in the branches of an oak, or on the top of a palm tree. In this it collects cinnamon, and spikenard, and myrrh, and of these materials builds a pile on which it deposits itself, and dying, breathes out its last breath amidst odors. From the body of the parent bird a young Phoenix issues forth, destined to live a life as long as its predecessor. When this has grown up and gathered sufficient strength, it lifts its nest from the tree (its own cradle and its parent’s sepulcher), and carries it to the city of Heliopolis in Egypt, and deposits it in the temple of the Sun.
  • There'll be that crowd, that barbarous crowd, through all the centuries,
    And who can say but some young belle may walk and talk men wild
    Who is my beauty's equal, though that my heart denies,
    But not the exact likeness, the simplicity of a child,
    And that proud look as though she had gazed into the burning sun,
    And all the shapely body no tittle gone astray.
    I mourn for that most lonely thing; and yet God's will be done:
    I knew a phoenix in my youth, so let them have their day.

Phoenix [1] is the capital of the state of Arizona as well as the most populous city in the American Southwest and fifth largest city in the United States. Founded in 1871, it has become the region's primary political, cultural, economic, and transportation center. At an elevation of 1100 feet, it is situated in the biologically unique Sonoran Desert.

Understand

Why would anybody want to start a city in the middle of a desert? The answer is, surprisingly, agriculture. The Salt and Verde Rivers of central Arizona were exploited for large-scale agriculture by Native Americans as early as the 11th century. The area that now encompasses Phoenix was a center of the Hohokam culture, which built large canal systems and a network of towns and villages, whose remains may be viewed in the city to this day. White settlers discovered the remnants of the Hohokam culture in the 19th century. The city's name reflects its history as a city "reborn from the ashes" of the previous settlement.
Anglo-American settlement of the area commenced in the 1860s, and in 1911 the completion of the first of several large reservoirs in the mountains north and east of Phoenix insured its success as a center for irrigation-based agriculture. Many tens of thousands of acres were planted in citrus and cotton and other crops, and for many years, intensive, year-round irrigated agriculture formed the basis of the economy. Recent years are seeing a revival, and trendy hotels, bars, shops and restaurants are making it a place to be again.
Warm and sunny winter weather also ensured a thriving tourism industry, and encouraged many Easterners and Midwesterners to relocate to Phoenix. High-tech industry began to flourish after World War II, and since that time the growth of Phoenix has been explosive. As a result, a population of just 106,818 in 1950 has given way to a 2006 estimate of 1,512,986 (with the metro area estimated at 4,039,182) [2].

Talk

English is the dominant language in Phoenix. However, like much of the Southwest with a large Hispanic population, Spanish is very widely spoken in Phoenix. Spanish is a language often used for day-to-day discourse in many places, although English is the language of preference, especially when dealing with businesses and government.

Phoenix has an arid climate with long, hot summers and very mild winters. It has the highest average temperature of any metropolitan area in the States. The weather varies enormously from one season to the next. While it's not as cold as in the northern states during the winter, it does freeze sometimes, and temperatures in the 30s (°F) are not unheard of. In the summer, very hot and dry heat is the norm. On the hottest days, it can get up to 115°F or more. Monsoon rains with lightning occur regularly from July to September during the late afternoon and evening, occasionally overnight also. April is the most ideal month. In some neighborhoods, cicada (locust-like insects) make loud sounds from sunset to sunrise.

Get in

By plane

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (IATA: PHX) (602) 275-4958 [3] is the main air gateway to Arizona. It is in East Phoenix 3 miles from downtown. It is the primary hub for US Airways [4] and a major hub for Great Lakes Airlines [5] and Southwest Airlines [6].
  • Terminal 2: Alaska Airlines, Continental, Great Lakes Airlines, United
  • Terminal 3: Airtran, American, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian Airlines, Jet Blue, Midwest Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines
  • Terminal 4: Aeroméxico, Air Canada, British Airways, Southwest Airlines, US Airways, WestJet
Phoenix Transit Bus-Red Line and #13 run from the airport into the city.

Alternative Airports

  • Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (IATA: AZA) 480-988-7600 [7] is located east of Phoenix, in neighboring Mesa. It is served mainly by Allegiant Air [8], although Vision Airlines [9] also offers service from North Las Vegas. Currently, this is a smaller-sized airport but is in the process of being redeveloped into a major regional airport.
  • Phoenix Deer Valley Airport (IATA: DVT) 623-869-0975 [10], located just 15 miles north of Downtown Phoenix, is the busiest general aviation airport in the United States.

By train

Due to a dispute among the Arizona Department of Transportation, the Union Pacific Railroad, and Amtrak, passenger train service to Phoenix has been discontinued. Amtrak passengers may disembark at Maricopa, Arizona (25 miles south of Phoenix) and arrange their own travel into the city. No regular shuttle service currently exists. (Alternative: they may disembark at Flagstaff instead and take a bus into Phoenix from there. The Maricopa-Phoenix route, which uses taxi services, takes about an hour but one likely has to wait for the taxi after calling; the Flagstaff-Phoenix route takes three hours.) (Another alternative: disembark in Tucson and take a Greyhound bus into Phoenix; the Greyhound station in Tucson is about 5-6 blocks west of the Amtrak depot.)

By car

Interstate 10 enters Phoenix from the south and west, and Interstate 17 comes in from the north. US Route 60 is also a major route into Phoenix from the east. Arizona State Route 87 comes in south from Payson.
  • Amtrak [11] sells tickets to and from Flagstaff.
  • Arizona Shuttle [12] offers shuttle service between Sky Harbor and Tucson.
  • Greyhound Bus Lines, 2115 E. Buckeye Rd., +1 602-389-4200, [13]. This is a large bus terminal adjacent to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
  • MaricopaXpress [14], a commuter service offering two morning inbound trips from the town of Maricopa and two afternoon outbound trips. Fares are $3 and under.
  • ProSedan [15]. 480-203-1235 Taxi, Limousine, Bus, and Town Car Service. Authorized Phoenix airport livery service.
  • TUFESA Bus Lines, Bus service to/from Mexico.
  • Silver Spur Tours' [16] 928.226.7212 or 800.600.4006 Shuttle service to and from Flagstaff, Sedona, Williams, Grand Canyon. Mercedes built Sprinter Vans for luxurious comfort, chilled water, sodas and snacks always included. guided tours available. Guided tours, VIP pick up and tours. Luxury and Style always Standard.
Renting a car like a local
The new Car Rental Facility for the Phoenix Airport is just west of the airport itself. National polls have shown that Phoenix is the 4th highest city in terms of surcharges in the nation. Car rental companies are required to add 29% (no decimal point, that's twenty nine percent!) to your bill to pay for this state of the art building. Take a cab to a local office of a car rental company. Do not tell them you are flying in. That way you are a "local rental" and do not have to pay some of the surcharges that are automatic if you rent at the car rental building at the airport. The surcharges finance everything from the local jails to the new Cardinals Stadium. The cab will likely be $25, but the surcharges for a $499 weekly rental will take your bill upwards of $650 and more. That cab looks a little cheaper now, doesn't it?
Alternatively, if you're doing a tour of the Southwest, consider flying into Las Vegas and renting your car there — the taxes are much lower and doing a one-way drop off to Phoenix is generally not a problem.
Due to the high level of suburban sprawl in the city, getting anywhere on foot is almost an impossibility (especially in the hot summer). The limited options for public transportation mean that using a car will be a necessity for many travellers in Phoenix. Unless you plan to stay downtown or in a single location elsewhere, you will find that a car is very convenient in Phoenix.
Surface roads in Phoenix are usually easy to navigate. The area's roads are designed around a grid system, where most roads are numbered based on their distance from the city center. Addresses also conform to the numbering of the roads around them. Nearly all streets run with the compass directions, and there's a major thoroughfare every mile in each direction. This also applies to the extended metro area, though addresses in places like Tempe and Mesa are not based on downtown Phoenix.
There is an extensive network of freeways, most built since 1987. Caution: Heavy construction on some segments and interchanges continues. Check construction schedules and closures in the local media.
Drinking and driving is a extreme don't do in phoenix, especially in Scottsdale and Tempe. Harsh DUI laws & police traps ensure you will most likely be pulled over during peak bar hours 11pm-2:30am.
  • Valley Metro [17]. Extensive metropolitan bus system, and light rail line. The light rail line runs from north-central Phoenix, along the Central Avenue corridor, through downtown, past the airport, and to Tempe and Mesa. Passes are good for unlimited rides on light rail and buses.
  • Car rental is the most convenient form of transportation for visitors, with local companies offering better prices but national chains offering more convenience vis-a-vis return policies and times.
Car Hire Unlike most cities, in Phoenix you can get a sedan, SUV or even a limo to pick you up for about the same price as a cab. Companies providing such services include:
  • Scottsdale Car Service [18]
  • Skycar Limousines [19]
  • Vip Limousines [20]
  • Execucar [21]
  • Yellow Cab [22]
  • Scottsdale Car Service, 480 502 2221, [23]. 24/7.  edit

Professional Sports

Unfortunately professional sports events are pricing themselves out of the pocket of the average traveller.

Stay safe

Despite being a nice vacation destination, Phoenix is a major American city and as such does contain a fair amount of violent crime. Some parts of the city (and even a few parts of some of the suburbs) should be avoided at night. Downtown Phoenix is safe during the day, but does have a problem with the homeless/transients, some of whom approach well-dressed office workers and tourists asking for spare change. If visiting downtown at night (such as a Diamondbacks or Suns game), always go with a group. South Phoenix can be unsafe in some areas.
Maryvale, a commercial/residential district on the west side of the city of Phoenix (extending north into Glendale as well), should be avoided at almost all times unless there is a specific reason to go there.
Most of the suburban areas are safe during day and night; however, parts of Mesa and Glendale can be dangerous at night. Some portions of Tempe, near the main campus of Arizona State University (ASU), have seen assaults in the recent past on a few university students. The ASU campus is equipped with several emergency call boxes.
The Sunnyslope area (north central city of Phoenix) has some homeless and other crime issues and should be avoided at night.
The town of Guadalupe (immediately west of Tempe and bounded by Interstate 10 on the west) is unsafe at night, but is an incredibly interesting Hispanic/Native American community to visit during the day.
In every portion of the Phoenix area, just use common sense and be aware of your surroundings.
Phoenix also has one of the highest car theft rates in the country, with a car stolen every 7 minutes. In addition, red light running is more common in Phoenix than any other city in the U.S. Use caution at every turn.
Be aware of traffic and speed enforcement cameras at most major intersections. Always anticipate someone attempting to beat the amber light before it turns red to avoid being issued a very expensive traffic ticket (usually in the amount of $300 or more).

South Mountain Park, within the city limits, is a popular destination to experience the Sonoran Desert on foot.
  • Camelback Mountain - very popular hike in central Phoenix. Great views from top. Two routes:
    • Echo Canyon (West entry - Macdonald/Tatum). Arrive early on weekends for trailhead parking (50cars), or walk 1/2 mile to satellite parking. 1.25 mi steep hike.
    • East entry (Invergorden/Jackrabbit). Park 1/2 mi from trailhead. Easier route 1.5mi, skirts Phoenician (Keating resort), less developed.
  • Squaw Peak (Piestewa Peak) (Lincoln Dr/20th St) - Arrive early on weekends. Good parking close to trailhead. 1.25mile hike (easier than Camelback Mtn). Great views (just 3 miles from Camelback Mtn). Park of Phoenix Preserve (48th St to 7th Ave), lots of good hiking and mountain biking. Recommend trail 300 from Squaw Peak parking (dogs allowed).

After Space Invaders and Galaxian proved that the vertical space shooter was a formula for financial success at the arcades, tons of arcade manufacturers raced to flood the market with similar products. A few of them were good, but most them were bad. Phoenix was one of the rare exceptions.
Phoenix features three different scenarios across five different stages. The first two stages have the player fighting against small space birds. The next two stages pit the player against much larger falcon-like birds. The final stage is the showdown against the mothership. In addition to firing upwards, the ship can also erect a temporary shield that destroys the birds.
While Phoenix stood out in a crowd, it was still part of a big crowd that began to look less attractive when Pac-Man arrived, proving that not all successful arcade games had to be about space. Nevertheless, Atari licensed the rights to Phoenix and ported it to their Atari 2600 home system, but surprisingly to nothing else. Ironically, the company Imagic developed a space shooter called Demon Attack that bore a slight resemblance to Phoenix. Atari sued Imagic, and the settled out of court.

Trivia

Atari 2600 box
Phoenix is one of five Atari 2600 games that came packaged with an Atari Force comic book. The comic book that came with Phoenix initially appeared in New Teen Titans #27 and DC Comics Presents #53 with a different premise. The story behind the comic was meant to provide a background story for the arcade game Liberator. The script for the story was revised when it was released with Phoenix, and all references to "Liberator" were replaced with "Phoenix".
