Famous quotes containing the word path:

    Examples are cited by soldiers, of men who have seen the cannon pointed, and the fire given to it, and who have stepped aside from he path of the ball. The terrors of the storm are chiefly confined to the parlour and the cabin.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The sweetest and most inoffensive path of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can either remove any obstructions in this way, or open up any new prospect, ought so far to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Tired,
    she looked up the path
    her lover would take
    as far as her eyes could see.
    On the roads,
    traffic ceased
    at the end of day
    as night slid over the sky.
    The traveller’s pained wife
    took a single step towards home,
    said, “Could he not have come at this instant?”
    and quickly craning her neck around,
    looked up the path again.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
