Famous quotes containing the word countries:

    Indeed, men never know how to love. nothing satisfies them. All they know is to dream, to imagine new duties, to look for new countries and new homes. While we women, we know that we must hasten to love, to share the same bed, hold hands, and fear absence. When we women love, we dream of nothing.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    In countries where there is a mild climate, less effort is expended on the struggle with nature and man is kinder and more gentle.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
