Famous quotes containing the word west:

    Out where the handclasp’s a little stronger,
    Out where the smile dwells a little longer,
    That’s where the West begins.
    Arthur Chapman (1873–1935)

    His role was as the gentle teacher, the logical, compassionate, caring and articulate teacher, who inspired you so that you wanted to please him more than life itself.
    Carol Lawrence, U.S. singer, star of West Side Story. Conversations About Bernstein, p. 172, ed. William Westbrook Burton, Oxford University Press (1995)

    Where there’s more of singing and less of sighing,
    Where there’s more of giving and less of buying,
    And a man makes friends without half trying
    That’s where the West begins.
    Arthur Chapman (1873–1935)
