Famous quotes containing the word exploration:

    For women who do not love us, as for the “disappeared”, knowing that we no longer have any hope does not prevent us form continuing to wait.

    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    I call her old. She has one family

    And before that of exploration even.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The future author is one who discovers that language, the exploration and manipulation of the resources of language, will serve him in winning through to his way.
    Thornton Wilder (1897–1975)
