Famous quotes containing the word west:

    O native country, repossessed by thee!
    For, rather than I’ll to the West return,
    I’ll beg of thee first here to have mine urn.
    Weak I am grown, and must in short time fall;
    Give thou my sacred relics burial.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    Just how difficult it is to write biography can be reckoned by anybody who sits down and considers just how many people know the real truth about his or her love affairs.
    —Rebecca West [Cicily Isabel Fairfield] (1892–1983)

    Sometimes, because of its immediacy, television produces a kind of electronic parable. Berlin, for instance, on the day the Wall was opened. Rostropovich was playing his cello by the Wall that no longer cast a shadow, and a million East Berliners were thronging to the West to shop with an allowance given them by West German banks! At that moment the whole world saw how materialism had lost its awesome historic power and become a shopping list.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
