Way is generic, denoting any line for passage or conveyance; a highway is literally one raised for the sake of dryness and convenience in traveling; a road is, strictly, a way for horses and carriages; a street is, etymologically, a paved way, as early made in towns and cities; and, hence, the word is distinctively applied to roads or highways in compact settlements. All keep the broad highway, and take delight With many rather for to go astray. --Spenser. There is but one road by which to climb up. --Addison. When night Darkens the streets, then wander forth the sons Of Belial, flown with insolence and wine. --Milton.
