Famous quotes containing the word pushing:

    ... I want to live and be happy. I believe that we cannot be one or the other by pushing the absurd to all its consequences. I am like everyone. To feel liberated, I sometimes wish death on my loved ones, I covet the wives forbidden to me by the laws of family and friendship. To be logical, I should then kill or possess. But I judge that these vague ideas are unimportant. I everyone tried to put them to reality, we could neither live nor be happy.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    If you think of learning as a path, you can picture yourself walking beside her rather than either pushing or dragging or carrying her along.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    I have learned to walk: since then, I have indulged myself in running. I have learned to fly: since then, I do not want anybody pushing me to get me going.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
