Famous quotes containing the words the end of, the end and/or era:

    Practically everyone now bemoans Western man’s sense of alienation, lack of community, and inability to find ways of organizing society for human ends. We have reached the end of the road that is built on the set of traits held out for male identity—advance at any cost, pay any price, drive out all competitors, and kill them if necessary.
    Jean Baker Miller (20th century)

    This could be the day.
    I could slip anchor and wander
    to the end of the jetty
    uncoil into the waters
    a vessel of light moonglade
    ride the freshets to sundown
    Audre Lorde (1934–1992)

    It is not an era of repose. We have used up all our inherited freedom. If we would save our lives, we must fight for them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
