What is drive?

Famous quotes containing the word drive:

    we, outlaws on God’s property,
    Fling out imagination beyond the skies,
    Wishing a tangible good from the unknown.
    And likewise death will drive us from the scene
    With the great flowering world unbroken yet,
    Which we held in idea, a little handful.
    Richard Eberhart (b. 1904)

    The wisest among us is very lucky never to have met the woman, be she beautiful or ugly, intelligent or stupid, who could drive him crazy enough to be fit to be put into an asylum.
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    The mission of men there seems to be, like so many busy demons, to drive the forest all out of the country, from every solitary beaver swamp and mountain-side, as soon as possible.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
