Famous quotes containing the word peter:
“Travel is like adultery: one is always tempted to be unfaithful to ones own country. To have imagination is inevitably to be dissatisfied with where you live. There is in men, as Peter Quennell said, a centrifugal tendency. In our wanderlust, we are lovers looking for consummation.”
—Anatole Broyard (19101990)
