Famous quotes containing the words cross, country and/or world:

    I know we’re not saints or virgins or lunatics; we know all the lust and lavatory jokes, and most of the dirty people; we can catch buses and count our change and cross the roads and talk real sentences. But our innocence goes awfully deep, and our discreditable secret is that we don’t know anything at all, and our horrid inner secret is that we don’t care that we don’t.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    There is no passion more dominant and instinctive in the human spirit than the need of the country to which one belongs.... The time comes when nothing in the world is so important as a breath of one’s own particular climate. If it were one’s last penny it would be used for that return passage.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Who can wonder that the world is known
    So well by man, since himself is one?
    The same composure in his form is shewed,
    And man’s the little image of the God.
    Marcus Manilius (10 B.C.–A.D. 30)
