Famous quotes containing the word reach:

    We are not certain, we are never certain. If we were we could reach some conclusions, and we could, at last, make others take us seriously.
    In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    The mountainous region of the State of Maine stretches from near the White Mountains, northeasterly one hundred and sixty miles, to the head of the Aroostook River, and is about sixty miles wide. The wild or unsettled portion is far more extensive. So that some hours only of travel in this direction will carry the curious to the verge of a primitive forest, more interesting, perhaps, on all accounts, than they would reach by going a thousand miles westward.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is a happy thing that there is no royal road to poetry. The world should know by this time that one cannot reach Parnassus except by flying thither.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
