Famous quotes containing the word returning:

    They will visit you at your convenience, whether you are lonesome or not, on rainy days or fair. They propose themselves as either transient acquaintances or permanent friends. They will stay as long as you like, departing or returning as you wish. Their friendship entails no obligation. Best of all, and not always true of our merely human friends, they have Cleopatra’s infinite variety.
    Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)

    The hotel was once where things coalesced, where you could meet both townspeople and travelers. Not so in a motel. No matter how you build it, the motel remains the haunt of the quick and dirty, where the only locals are Chamber of Commerce boys every fourth Thursday. Who ever heard the returning traveler exclaim over one of the great motels of the world he stayed in? Motels can be big, but never grand.
    William Least Heat Moon [William Trogdon] (b. 1939)

    Earth in beauty dressed
    Awaits returning spring.
    All true love must die,
    Alter at the best
    Into some lesser thing.
    Prove that I lie.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
