H. P. Lovecraft

Robert Green Ingersoll
Ahead now, I think you'll see the big nations shrink back into their own corners of the world. I'm not saying we'll see no international trade, but it will be nothing like the conveyer belt from China to Wal-Mart that we've known the last few decades. And the prospects for conflict are very, very high.
James Howard Kunstler
People get nervous driving around corners, thinking they're going to tip over. But you can go soooo much faster through the curves than you realize.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Courage can't see around corners but goes around them anyway.

I am really rather like a beautiful Jersey cow, I have the same pathetic droop to the corners of my eyes.
The traditional family table is round. No corners. No sides. No head. No tail. Everything is smooth. The food is in the center, and each family member reaches over the same distance.

Saint Teresa of Avila

'Well, there you go buddy.'
