Famous quotes containing the word pushing:

    Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five
    thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from
    anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I
    could completely imagine his suffering and I replied
    that five thousand Chinamen was something I could not
    imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to
    remember that about imagination, that is when the
    world gets dull when everybody does not know what
    they can or what they cannot really imagine.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    I remember once dreaming of pushing a canoe up the rivers of Maine, and that, when I had got so high that the channels were dry, I kept on through the ravines and gorges, nearly as well as before, by pushing a little harder, and now it seemed to me that my dream was partially realized.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I was only sitting here in my white study
    with the awful black words pushing me around.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
