“Failure is delay, but not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead-end street.”

William Arthur Ward (1921-94)

“I live on a one-way street that’s also a dead end. I’m not sure how I got there.”

 Stephen Wright 

“It is a sure sign that a culture has reached a dead end when it is no longer intrigued by its myths.”

Greil Marcus
