Famous quotes containing the words country, world and/or cross:

    Our own country furnishes antiquities as ancient and durable, and as useful, as any; rocks at least as well covered with lichens, and a soil which, if it is virgin, is but virgin mould, the very dust of nature. What if we cannot read Rome or Greece, Etruria or Carthage, or Egypt or Babylon, on these; are our cliffs bare?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The world is ... the natural setting of, and field for, all my thoughts and all my explicit perceptions. Truth does not “inhabit” only “the inner man,” or more accurately, there is no inner man, man is in the world, and only in the world does he know himself.
    Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1907–1961)

    It was mankind that hung on the cross for two thousand years: and a terrible god practiced his cruelty and called it “love.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
