Famous quotes containing the word direct:

    England and France, Spain and Portugal, Gold Coast and Slave Coast, all front on this private sea; but no bark from them has ventured out of sight of land, though it is without doubt the direct way to India.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Pleasure is the rock which most young people split upon; they launch out with crowded sails in quest of it, but without a compass to direct their course, or reason sufficient to steer the vessel; for want of which, pain and shame, instead of pleasure, are the returns of their voyage.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    No amount of charters, direct primaries, or short ballots will make a democracy out of an illiterate people.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
