Famous quotes containing the words journey and/or grandfather:

    Science and art, or by the same token, poetry and prose differ from one another like a journey and an excursion. The purpose of the journey is its goal, the purpose of an excursion is the process.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
