Famous quotes containing the words gulf and/or grand:

    His father watched him across the gulf of years and pathos which always must divide a father from his son.
    —J.P. (John Phillips)

    One would like to be grand and heroic, if one could; but if not, why try at all? One wants to be very something, very great, very heroic; or if not that, then at least very stylish and very fashionable. It is this everlasting mediocrity that bores me.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)
