Sothat finding myself at present inorabout onehundred and twenty degrees off east longitude from England, it bred in me a desire to proceed on the same easterly course till I had ended where I began, and so to have once made one circle round the globe of the earth, which would have been a voyage of voyages.
Where in this small-talking world can I find A longitude with no platitude?C(harles) B(urgess) Fry
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance. They make the latitudes and longitudes.Henry David Thoreau
I dwelt in a city enchanted, And lonely indeed was my lot; * * * * * Though the latitude's rather uncertain, And the longitude also is vague, The persons I pity who know not the City The beautiful City of Prague.
