West Foundation

Famous quotes containing the words west and/or foundation:

    O native country, repossessed by thee!
    For, rather than I’ll to the West return,
    I’ll beg of thee first here to have mine urn.
    Weak I am grown, and must in short time fall;
    Give thou my sacred relics burial.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practised, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good.... God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.
    Pierre Charron (1541–1603)
