Famous quotes containing the words cities, river and/or bandits:
“Again and again I am brought up against it, and again and again I resist it: I dont want to believe it, even though it is almost palpable: the vast majority lack an intellectual conscience; indeed, it often seems to me that to demand such a thing is to be in the most populous cities as solitary as in the desert.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“Other roads do some violence to Nature, and bring the traveler to stare at her, but the river steals into the scenery it traverses without intrusion, silently creating and adorning it, and is as free to come and go as the zephyr.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
