Famous quotes containing the word pioneer:

    The poet is no tender slip of fairy stock, who requires peculiar institutions and edicts for his defense, but the toughest son of earth and of Heaven, and by his greater strength and endurance his fainting companions will recognize the God in him. It is the worshipers of beauty, after all, who have done the real pioneer work of the world.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    New pioneer of days and ways, be gone.
    Hunt out your own or make your own alone.
    Go down the street.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
