Famous quotes containing the words summits, isolated and/or major:

    There is, however, this consolation to the most way-worn traveler, upon the dustiest road, that the path his feet describe is so perfectly symbolical of human life,—now climbing the hills, now descending into the vales. From the summits he beholds the heavens and the horizon, from the vales he looks up to the heights again. He is treading his old lessons still, and though he may be very weary and travel-worn, it is yet sincere experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An isolated outbreak of virginity ... is a rash on the face of society. It arouses only pity from the married, and embarrassment from the single.
    Charlotte Bingham (b. 1942)

    Society needs to condemn a little more and understand a little less.
    —John Major (b. 1943)
