To the wrongs that need resistance, To the right that needs assistance, To the future in the distance, Give yourselves.
Carrie Chapman Catt
There's nothing like being involved with a team that can go that distance.

Henry David Thoreau
Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.
Age, like distance lends a double charm.
Thanh Hoa itself is a rich agricultural province. Rice fields, a pattern of many shades of green, stretch far into the distance along the road, which also winds through foothills and the fringes of heavy jungle where tigers are said to roam. The vegetation, wild or cultivated, is lush.
I think about myself as like an ocean liner that's been going full speed for a long distance, and the captain pulls the throttle back all the way to 'stop,' but the ship doesn't stop immediately, does it?
