Sixty

Famous quotes containing the word sixty:

    The world is the house of the strong. I shall not know until the end what I have lost or won in this place, in this vast gambling den where I have spent more than sixty years, dicebox in hand, shaking the dice.
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    At sixty I look back on a life of deep disappointments, of withered hopes, of unlooked for suffering, of severe discipline.
    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    The mountainous region of the State of Maine stretches from near the White Mountains, northeasterly one hundred and sixty miles, to the head of the Aroostook River, and is about sixty miles wide. The wild or unsettled portion is far more extensive. So that some hours only of travel in this direction will carry the curious to the verge of a primitive forest, more interesting, perhaps, on all accounts, than they would reach by going a thousand miles westward.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
