Imagine a drum which wraps itself around your heart. Imagine a story that puts wood in the fireplace.” ~ Sherman Alexie , Long road quotes home

But ere the circle homeward hies Far, far must it remove: White in the moon the long road lies That leads me from my love.” ~ A. E. Housman

  59. “It has been a long road from Plato’s Meno to the present, but it is perhaps encouraging that most of the progress along that road has been made since the turn of the twentieth century, and a large fraction of it since the midpoint of the century.

And it seemed still to inhabit mainly the heaven of Platonic ideals, or the equally obscure spaces of the human mind, until computers taught us how symbols could be processed by machines.” ~ Allen Newell

It makes me say I can get more and I can do more.” ~ Kevin Hart
