Famous quotes containing the words spirit, concepts, advanced and/or soaring:

    There is one thing you and I as parents cannot do, not do we want to do if we really think about it, and that’s control our children’s will—that spirit that lets them be themselves apart from you and me. They are not ours to possess, control, manipulate, or even to make mind.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    During our twenties...we act toward the new adulthood the way sociologists tell us new waves of immigrants acted on becoming Americans: we adopt the host culture’s values in an exaggerated and rigid fashion until we can rethink them and make them our own. Our idea of what adults are and what we’re supposed to be is composed of outdated childhood concepts brought forward.
    Roger Gould (20th century)

    We have advanced by leaps to the Pacific, and left many a lesser Oregon and California unexplored behind us.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Think of our little eggshell of a canoe tossing across that great lake, a mere black speck to the eagle soaring above it!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
