In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past, bridge to our future.
I have laid the stick that connects people together. Now it is up to you, your generation and the generations to come, to build upon that stick a bridge that will ensure the free sharing of information and teaching between the two peoples until the day we become united again as a single people, as we were once before; before men separated us with their imaginary political boundaries of today's Polynesia and Micronesia.mau piailug
Our so-called Society people, instead of going in for sport, persist in holding conversations in their drawing rooms, generally in a foreign tongue. They engage nurse maids, personal maids and governesses of all nationalities except Italian. They play poker and bridge with the accompanying drinks, certainly not Italian brands!achille starace
Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security of familiar experience; they need a bridge to cross from their own experience to a new way. A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate.saul alinsky
Without a belief in personal immortality, religion surely is like an arch resting on one pillar, like a bridge ending in an abyss.Max Müller, Chips from a German Workshop, Volume I: Essays on the Science of Religion (1867), p. 45.
Morpheus' gifts used to come to me in bottles, Beam and black Jack Daniel's, straight up with a frosted schooner of Jax on the side, while the rain poor down in the neon glow outside the window of an all-night bar not far from the Huey Long bridge. In a half hour I could kick open a furnace door and fling into the flames all the snakes and squeaking bats that lived inside me. Except the next morning they would writhe with new life in the ashes and come back home, stinking and hungry.A Morning for Flamingos (1990)
Cavendish did not stand aloof from other men in a proud or supercilious spirit, refusing to count them his fellows. He felt himself separated from them by a great gulf, which neither they nor he could bridge over, and across which it was vain to stretch hands or exchange greetings. A sense of isolation from his brethren, made him shrink from their society and avoid their presence, but he did so as one conscious of an infirmity, not boasting of an excellence.henry cavendish
South America had been an island continent, far bigger and far more diverse than Australia, for tens of millions of years before the Isthmus of Panama rose just a couple of million years ago. The resulting flood of North American mammals across the new land bridge corresponds in time with the decimation of the native South American fauna. In fact, most large mammals generally considered distinctly South American... are all recent migrants from North America.stephen jay gould
The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane fliesCold Mountain Transcendental Poetry by the t'ang zen poet han-shan (2005, 2011), tr.

When Roman engineers built a bridge, they had to stand under it while the first legion marched across. If programmers today worked under similar ground rules, they might well find themselves getting much more interested in Ada!Robert Dewar (President Ada Core Technologies); Quoted in Preben Randhol (2004) "Re: No call for Ada." coding.derkeiler.com, Februari 11, 20004
Get off the bridge! I love you, too.Who: Donna Dunlap
Yes sir. But the bridge seems to be run by computer. It is the only thing that is speaking.Who: Torg
When the ephemeral vision 's lure is past All, all, must face their Passion at the last. So touch my dying lip : so bridge that deep: So pledge my waking from the gift of sleep .Hilaire Belloc, in Dionysus: a case of vintage tales about wine, p.309
The tradition is one of iconic crossings across the river Hooghly in the stretch of the river falling within the enlarged Kolkata metro area – Vivekananda bridge (Bally bridge), Rabindar Setu, (Howrah bridge) and Vidyasagar Setu (Second Hooghly bridge). While the mighty river forms the backdrop of the development of the region over centuries, it had also posed a challenge as regards connection to the rest of the country. It is this challenge that the continuing tradition addresses, and addresses a new with a state-of-the art, recently opened and the newly christened Nivedita bridge.S S Chakraborty, in Design and Construction Features of Nivedita Bridge
