Famous quotes containing the words front and/or united:

    A man’s destination is his own village,
    His own cooking fire, and his wife’s cooking;
    To sit in front of his own door at sunset
    And see his grandson, and his neighbour’s grandson
    Playing in the dust together.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Man is to himself the most wonderful object in nature; for he cannot conceive what the body is, still less what the mind is, and least of all how a body should be united to a mind. This is the consummation of his difficulties, and yet this is his very being.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
