Famous quotes containing the word guide:

    ...to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 1:76.

    Zechariah speaking about his son.

    How can a monarchy be a suitable thing, which allows a man to do as he pleases with none to hold him to account. And even if you were to take the best man on earth, and put him into a monarchy, you put outside him the thoughts that usually guide him.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    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)
