Famous quotes containing the words roads and/or named:

    Lift your eyes
    Where the roads dip and where the roads rise
    Seek only there
    Where the grey light meets the green air
    The hermit’s chapel, the pilgrim’s prayer.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    I sometimes think I was born to live up to my name. How could I be anything else but what I am having been named Madonna? I would either have ended up a nun or this.
    Madonna [Madonna Louise Ciccione] (b. 1959)
