Famous quotes containing the word guide:

    ‘Tis much he dares,
    And to that dauntless temper of his mind,
    He hath a wisdom that doth guide his valor
    To act in safety.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The office of the scholar is to cheer, to raise, and to guide men by showing them facts amidst appearances. He plies the slow, unhonored, and unpaid task of observation.... He is the world’s eye.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

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