A guide is a person who leads anyone through unknown or unmapped country. This includes a guide of the real world (such as someone who conducts travellers and tourists through a place of interest), as well as a person who leads someone to more abstract places (such as to knowledge or wisdom).
Famous quotes containing the word guide:
“Whatever were doing, whoever we are, it isnt enough. . . . Little wonder we have trouble finding role models to guide us through these shoals. No one less than God Herself could be all the things wed like to be to all the people wed like to feel approval from.”
—Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
“How can a monarchy be a suitable thing, which allows a man to do as he pleases with none to hold him to account. And even if you were to take the best man on earth, and put him into a monarchy, you put outside him the thoughts that usually guide him.”
—Herodotus (c. 484424 B.C.)
“The President is not only the leader of a party, he is the President of the whole people. He must interpret the conscience of America. He must guide his conduct by the idealism of our people.”
—Herbert Hoover (18741964)
