QUOTATIONS FROM CHAIRMAN LOUIS... L'AMOUR, THAT IS...



“The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast, and you miss all you are traveling for.” 


“I would not sit waiting for some vague tomorrow, nor for something to happen. One could wait a lifetime, and find nothing at the end of the waiting. I would begin here, I would make something happen.” 

 
“For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.”


“When you go to a country, you must learn how to say two things: how to ask for food, and to tell a woman that you love her. Of these the second is more important, for if you tell a woman you love her, she will certainly feed you.”


“Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.”


“Adventure is just a romantic name for trouble. It sounds swell when you write about it, but it's hell when you meet it face to face in a dark and lonely place.”


“The way I see it, every time a man gets up in the morning he starts his life over. Sure, the bills are there to pay, and the job is there to do, but you don't have to stay in a pattern. You can always start over, saddle a fresh horse and take another trail.” 


“There is nothing more dangerous than a woman with a shotgun. Because you don't know when it's going to go off...and neither does she.”


“No man ever raised a monument to a cynic or wrote a poem about a man without faith.” 


“He never knew when he was whipped ... So he never was.......” 


“If you want the law to leave you alone, keep your hair trimmed and your boots shined.” 


“Too often I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen.”


PEACE
