Famous quotes containing the word road:

    [T]he temple through which alone lies the road to that of Liberty.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    Evil can be got very easily and exists in quantity: the road to her is very smooth, and she lives near by. But between us and virtue the gods have placed the sweat of our brows; the road to her is long and steep, and it is rough at first; but when a man has reached the top, then she is easy to attain, although before she was hard.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    Dear common flower, that grow’st beside the way,
    Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
    First pledge of blithesome May,
    Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
    Hight-hearted buccaneers, o’erjoyed that they
    An Eldorado in the grass have found,
    Which not the rich earth’s ample round
    May match in wealth—thou art more dear to me
    Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.
    James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
