Famous quotes containing the word guided:

    The guided missiles,
    The black-and-white angels follow each quirk and jink of
    The evasive sheep, play grandmother’s-steps behind them,
    Freeze to the ground, or leap to head off a straggler
    Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)

    Sometimes, when I compare myself with other men, it seems as if I were more favored by the gods than they, beyond any deserts that I am conscious of; as if I had a warrant and surety at their hands which my fellows have not, and were especially guided and guarded. I do not flatter myself, but if it be possible they flatter me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I do not know whether there be, as a rule, more vocal expression of the sentiment of love between a man and a woman, than there is between two thrushes. They whistle and call to each other, guided by instinct rather than by reason.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
