Famous quotes containing the word direction:

    German poetry is going in a very different direction from French poetry.... Its language has become more sober, more factual. It distrusts “beauty.” It tries to be truthful.
    Paul Celan [Paul Antschel] (1920–1970)

    From cradle to grave this problem of running order through chaos, direction through space, discipline through freedom, unity through multiplicity, has always been, and must always be, the task of education, as it is the moral of religion, philosophy, science, art, politics and economy; but a boy’s will is his life, and he dies when it is broken, as the colt dies in harness, taking a new nature in becoming tame.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
