River quotes (5)

I could never love where I could not respect.
Charlotte Elizabeth Aisse   Category: River

See one promontory one mountain one sea one river and see all.
Socrates   Category: River

In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. Therefore in the Old Silurian Period the Mississippi River was upward of one million three hundred thousand miles long seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesome returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
Mark Twain   Category: River

See one promontory (said Socrates of old) one mountain one sea one river and see all.
Robert Burton   Category: River

He who endeavors to serve to benefit and improve the world is like a swimmer who struggles against a rapid current in a river lashed into angry waves by the winds. Often they roar over his head often they beat him back and baffle him. Most men yield to the stress of the current... Only here and there the stout strong heart and vigorous arms struggle on toward ultimate success.
