Famous quotes containing the words notable, highways and/or bridges:

    Every notable advance in technique or organization has to be paid for, and in most cases the debit is more or less equivalent to the credit. Except of course when it’s more than equivalent, as it has been with universal education, for example, or wireless, or these damned aeroplanes. In which case, of course, your progress is a step backwards and downwards.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    That is the land of lost content,
    I see it shining plain,
    The happy highways where I went
    And cannot come again.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    On such a night, when Air has loosed
    Its guardian grasp on blood and brain,
    Old terrors then of god or ghost
    Creep from their caves to life again;
    —Robert Bridges (1844–1930)
