Famous quotes containing the words point and/or extra:

    Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means at the point of highest reality.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
