Famous quotes containing the word guide:

    Past experience, if not forgotten, is a guide to the future.
    Chinese proverb.

    A guide book is addressed to those who plan to follow the traveler, doing what he has done, but more selectively. A travel book, in its purest, is addressed to those who do not plan to follow the traveler at all, but who require the exotic or comic anomalies, wonders and scandals of the literary form romance which their own place or time cannot entirely supply.
    Paul Fussell (b. 1924)

    Please walk alone and send your love and your kisses to guide me.
    Sammy Cahn (1913–1993)
