Famous quotes containing the word wander:

    Lest he should wander irretrievably from the right path, he stands still.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    But countless plagues wander among men; for earth is full of evils, and the sea is full.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    We do not rest satisfied with the present.... So imprudent we are that we wander in the times which are not ours and do not think of the only one which belongs to us; and so idle are we that we dream of those times which are no more and thoughtlessly overlook that which alone exists. For the present is generally painful to us.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
