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
Charminar , the four towered structure standing at the intersection of the four main streets of the city, like the Eiffel Tower of Paris , the Statue of Liberty in New York, or west Minister Abbey in London ..
But two miles more and then we rest! Well, there is still an hour of day, And long the brightness of the west Sit then, awhile, here in this wood So total is the solitude, We safely may delay.charlotte brontë
Part of a moon was falling down the west, Dragging the whole sky with it to the hills.
That memorable day died in purple and gold, and just as the last traces of the sunset faded in the west and the star-lilies filled the sky, the full moon looked down over the rim of the valley, and the great rocks, catching the silvery glow, came forth out of the dusky shadows like very spirits.john muir
I always knew children were anti-social. But the children of the west Side – they're savage.Mark Connelly
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.
Our predecessors, the Druids of Britain, tho' left in the extremest west to the improvement of their own thoughts, yet advanc'd their inquiries, under all disadvantages, to such heights, as should make our moderns asham'd, to wink in the sunshine of learning and religion.william stukeley
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
They throw in Drummer Hodge, to rest Uncoffined just as found: His landmark is a kopje-crest That breaks the veldt around; And foreign constellations west Each night above his mound. Young Hodge the Drummer never knew Fresh from his Wessex home The meaning of the broad Karoo, The Bush, the dusty loam, And why uprose to nightly view Strange stars amid the gloam. Yet portion of that unknown plain Will Hodge forever be; His homely Northern breast and brain Grow to some Southern tree, And strange-eyed constellations reign His stars eternally.thomas hardy
Every Federal program which has contributed to the development of the west irrigation, power, reclamation bears his mark, and the great Federal highway program which binds this country, together, which permits this State to be competitive east and west, north and south, this in large measure is his creation. John F. Kennedycarl hayden
How fine has the day been! how bright was the sun, How lovely and joyful the course that he run! Though he rose in a mist when his race he begun, And there followed some droppings of rain: But now the fair traveller's come to the west, His rays are all gold, and his beauties are best; He paints the skies gay as he sinks to his rest, And foretells a bright rising again.Isaac Watts
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
American critics of welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like west Germany, with a much more comprehensive welfare state and a statistically "larger" public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does.robert kuttner
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 must seek now to awake is not an anglicised oriental people, docile pupil of the west and doomed to repeat the cycle of the occident's success and failure, but still the ancient immemorable 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 a vaster form of her Dharma.sri aurobindo
We must be aware of the superiority of our civilization , a system that has guaranteed well-being, respect for human rights and in contrast with Islamic countries respect for religious and political rights, a system that has as its value understanding of diversity and tolerance ... The west will continue to conquer peoples, even if it means a confrontation with another civilization, Islam , firmly entrenched where it was 1,400 years ago.Silvio Berlusconi
The really good music, whether of the East or of the west, cannot be analyzed.Albert Einstein
For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the west, it is still a living lion.aleksandr solzhenitsyn

I have heard something said about allegiance to the South: I know no South, no North, no East, no west, to which I owe any allegiance.
