Famous quotes containing the word pathway:

    Many are obstinate with regard to the pathway once they have set upon it, few with regard to the goal.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Socrates drinking the hemlock,
    And Jesus on the rood;
    And millions who, humble and nameless,
    The straight, hard pathway plod—
    Some call it Consecration,
    And others call it God.
    William Herbet Carruth (1859–1929)

    And open field, through which the pathway wound,
    And homeward led my steps. Magnificent
    The morning rose, in memorable pomp,
    Glorious as e’er I had beheld—in front,
    The sea lay laughing at a distance; near,
    The solid mountains shone, bright as the clouds,
    Grain-tinctured, drenched in empyrean light;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
