Famous quotes containing the words horizons and/or time:

    Spread outward. Crack the round dome. Break through.
    Have liberty not as the air within a grave
    Or down a well. Breathe freedom, oh, my native,
    In the space of horizons that neither love nor hate.

    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
