One flew east, One flew west, One flew over the cuckoo's nest.
It's a warm wind, the west wind, full of birds' cries; I never hear the west wind but tears are in my eyes. For it comes from the west lands, the old brown hills, And April's in the west wind, and daffodils.john masefield

I think it was Jekyll who used to say that the further he went west, the more convinced he felt that the wise men came from the east.sydney smith
All day the head had been barely supportable but at evening a breeze arose in the west, blowing from the heart of the setting sun and from the ocean, which lay unseen, unheard behind the scrubby foothills. It shook the rusty fringes of palm-leaf and swelled the dry sounds of summer, the frog-voices, the grating cicadas, and the ever present pulse of music from the neighbouring native huts.evelyn waugh
Control over energy resources [of the former Soviet Union] and export routes out of the Eurasian hinterland is quickly becoming one of the central issues in post-Cold War politics. Like the "Great Game" of the early 20th century, in which the geopolitical interests of the British Empire and Russia clashed over the Caucasus region and Central Asia, today's struggle between Russia and the west may turn on who controls the oil reserves in Eurasia.

The Muslim world, with its history and cultures, and indeed its different interpretations of Islam, is still little known in the west… The two worlds, Muslim and non-Muslim, Eastern and Western, must, as a matter of urgency, make a real effort to get to know one another, for I fear that what we have is not a clash of civilisations, but a clash of ignorance on both sides.aga khan iv
It was pretty sad, because for the first time I found how stupid people could be. It sort of made me feel alone in the world. The more people pointed at me in scorn the more stubborn I got and when they began calling me the Bad Girl of west Seattle High, I tried to live up to it.frances farmer
We have successfully built up our national strength and prestige, accepting and adding to our civilization the art and science of the west. Now, I believe, the time has come for us to carry our art and culture to other countries.kōki hirota

Where may the wearied eye repose When gazing on the Great ; Where neither guilty glory glows, Nor despicable state? Yes one the first the last the best The Cincinnatus of the west, Whom envy dared not hate , Bequeath'd the name of Washington , To make man blush there was but one!lord byron

I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think that it will be based upon the color of the skin….malcolm (malcolm little) x

India of the ages is not dead nor has She spoken Her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human peoples. And that which She must seek now to awake , is not an Anglicized oriental people, docile people of the west and doomed to repeat the cycle of Occident ’s success and failure , but still the ancient immemorial Shakti recovering Her deepest self, lifting Her head higher towards the supreme source of light and strength and turning to discover the complete meaning and Vaster form of Her Dharma .
