Sights

Famous quotes containing the word sights:

    Television hangs on the questionable theory that whatever happens anywhere should be sensed everywhere. If everyone is going to be able to see everything, in the long run all sights may lose whatever rarity value they once possessed, and it may well turn out that people, being able to see and hear practically everything, will be specially interested in almost nothing.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    We can’t always have the beautiful aspect of things. Let us make the most of our sights that are beautiful and let the others go
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    You shall see men you never heard of before, whose names you don’t know,... and many other wild and noble sights before night, such as they who sit in parlors never dream of.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
