Henry Morton Stanley
The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
Andean skiing offers an unforgettable combination of beach-style weather, great snow and exotic travel. There are many attractions.

The formula 'Two and two make five' is not without its attractions.
One of the great attractions of patriotism - it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.

The land of Beulah lies beyond the valley of the shadow of death. Many Christians spend all their days in a continual bustle, doing good. They are too busy to find either the valley or Beulah.

I had a fear of becoming anything, a fear of becoming a specialist. I might have become a doctor, but if you become a doctor, that's your specialty in life and you are defined by it.
