The bedrock nature of space and time and the unification of cosmos and quantum are surely among science's great 'open frontiers.'

I belong to a nation which over the past centuries has experienced many hardships and reverses. The world reacted with silence or with mere sympathy when Polish frontiers were crossed by invading armies and the sovereign state had to succumb to brutal force.
Right knows no boundaries, and justice no frontiers; the brotherhood of man is not a domestic institution.

I think that weight designation is one of the last frontiers of bullying. I don't know what the right 'ism' for it is, but I think that there's a level of that that's happening that's certainly not okay.
As a species, we've always been discoverers and adventurers, and space and the deep ocean are some of the last frontiers.
