Directions

Famous quotes containing the word directions:

    What do you think of us in fuzzy endeavor, you whose directions are sterling, whose lunge is straight?
    Can you make a reason, how can you pardon us who memorize the rules and never score?
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    The cannon thunders ... limbs fly in all directions ... one can hear the groans of victims and the howling of those performing the sacrifice ... it’s Humanity in search of happiness.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    “Have we any control over being born?,” my friend asked in despair. “No, the job is done for us while we’re sleeping, so to speak, and when we wake up everything is all set. We merely appear, like an ornate celebrity wheeled out in a wheelchair.” “I don’t remember,” my friend claimed. “No need to,” I said: “what need have us free-loaders for any special alertness? We’re done for.”
    Marvin Cohen, U.S. author and humorist. The Self-Devoted Friend, New Directions (1967)
