Famous quotes containing the word search:

    why
    Do our black faces search the empty sky?
    Is there something we have forgotten? some precious thing
    We have lost, wandering in strange lands?
    Arna Bontemps (1902–1973)

    So often has my judgment deceived me in my life, that I always suspect it, right or wrong,—at least I am seldom hot upon cold subjects. For all this, I reverence truth as much as any body; and ... if a man will but take me by the hand, and go quietly and search for it ... I’ll go to the world’s end with him:MBut I hate disputes.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
