Famous quotes containing the word dimensions:

    I was surprised by Joe’s asking me how far it was to the Moosehorn. He was pretty well acquainted with this stream, but he had noticed that I was curious about distances, and had several maps. He and Indians generally, with whom I have talked, are not able to describe dimensions or distances in our measures with any accuracy.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    —J.L. (John Langshaw)
