Famous quotes containing the word destination:

    They wear their godhead lightly.
    They look out from their hill and say,
    To themselves, “We have nowhere to go but down;
    The great destination is to stay.”
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)

    A man’s destination is not his destiny,
    Every country is home to one man
    And exile to another. Where a man dies bravely
    At one with his destiny, that soil is his.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    A man’s destination is his own village,
    His own cooking fire, and his wife’s cooking;
    To sit in front of his own door at sunset
    And see his grandson, and his neighbour’s grandson
    Playing in the dust together.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
