Famous quotes containing the word front:

    We run heedlessly into the abyss after putting something in front of us to stop us seeing it.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Education is a necessity, it helps to understand life. Like that compagnero in Cuba who talked about politics, back when they were on strike. He knew many things, that hijo de puta, and he unraveled the most confusing situations in a marvelous way. You could see each point in front of you on the line of his reasoning like rinsed laundry set up to dry; he explained things to you so clearly that you could grasp it like a good hunk of bread with your hand.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    People’s backyards are much more interesting than their front gardens, and houses that back on to railways are public benefactors.
    Sir John Betjeman (1906–1984)
