Famous quotes containing the words extreme, points and/or americas:

    I am prisoner of a gaudy and unlivable present, where all forms of human society have reached an extreme of their cycle and there is no imagining what new forms they may assume.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)

    Mankind is not a circle with a single center but an ellipse with two focal points of which facts are one and ideas the other.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    The only history is a mere question of one’s struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
