Famous quotes containing the word guide:

    Whatever we’re doing, whoever we are, it isn’t enough. . . . Little wonder we have trouble finding role models to guide us through these shoals. No one less than God Herself could be all the things we’d like to be to all the people we’d like to feel approval from.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    The Indian attitude toward the land was expressed by a Crow named Curly: “The soil you see is not ordinary soil—it is the dust of the blood, the flesh, and the bones of our ancestors. You will have to dig down to find Nature’s earth, for the upper portion is Crow, my blood and my dead. I do not want to give it up.”
    —For the State of Montana, U.S. public relief program. Montana: A State Guide Book (The WPA Guide to Montana)

    Rise.
    Let us combine. There are no magics or elves
    Or timely godmothers to guide us. We are lost, must
    Wizard a track through our own screaming weed.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
