Famous quotes containing the word distant:

    Ev’n thou who mourn’st the Daisy’s fate,
    That fate is thine—no distant date;
    Stern Ruin’s ploughshare drives , elate,
    Full on thy bloom,
    Till crush’d beneath the furrow’s weight,
    Shall be thy doom.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    I do believe that the outward and the inward life correspond; that if any should succeed to live a higher life, others would not know of it; that difference and distance are one. To set about living a true life is to go on a journey to a distant country, gradually to find ourselves surrounded by new scenes and men; and as long as the old are around me, I know that I am not in any true sense living a new or a better life.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We don’t know when our name came into being or how some distant ancestor acquired it. We don’t understand our name at all, we don’t know its history and yet we bear it with exalted fidelity, we merge with it, we like it, we are ridiculously proud of it as if we had thought it up ourselves in a moment of brilliant inspiration.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)
