Famous quotes containing the words hill and/or road:
“O happy, happy each
man whom predestined fate
leads to the holy rite
of hill and mountain worship.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
“A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time.”
—Milan Kundera (b. 1929)
