Long Distance Footpath

Famous quotes containing the words long, distance and/or footpath:

    the pull of gravity, which is not simple
    which carries the feathered grass a long way down the upbreathing
    air.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.
    Nelson Mandela (b. 1918)

    Jog on, jog on, the footpath way,
    And merrily hent the stile-a.
    A merry heart goes all the day,
    Your sad tires in a mile-a.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
