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

    The goal for all blind skiers is more freedom. You don’t have to see where you’re going, as long as you go. In skiing, you ski with your legs and not with your eyes. In life, you experience things with your mind and your body. And if you’re lacking one of the five senses, you adapt.
    Lorita Bertraun, Blind American skier. As quoted in WomenSports magazine, p. 29 (January 1976)

    It was mankind that hung on the cross for two thousand years: and a terrible god practiced his cruelty and called it “love.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Foster the labor of our country by an undeviating metallic currency ... always recollecting that if labor is depressed neither commerce nor manufactures can flourish, as they are both based upon the production of labor, produced from the earth, or the mineral world.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
