Famous quotes containing the word straight:

    ... the truth is hidden from us. Even if a mere piece of luck brings us straight to it, we shall have no grounded conviction of our success; there are so many similar objects, all claiming to be the real thing.
    Lucian (c. 120–c. 180)

    Columbus has sailed westward of these isles by the mariner’s compass, but neither he nor his successors have found them. We are no nearer than Plato was. The earnest seeker and hopeful discoverer of this New World always haunts the outskirts of his time, and walks through the densest crowd uninterrupted, and, as it were, in a straight line.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When you come to a place where you have to go left or right, go straight ahead.
    Sister Ruth, U.S. nun. As quoted in Dakota, ch. 30, by Kathleen Norris (1993)
