Famous quotes containing the word destination:

    A man’s destination is his own village,
    His own cooking fire, and his wife’s cooking;
    To sit in front of his own door at sunset
    And see his grandson, and his neighbour’s grandson
    Playing in the dust together.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    They wear their godhead lightly.
    They look out from their hill and say,
    To themselves, “We have nowhere to go but down;
    The great destination is to stay.”
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)

    If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
