Image Quotes about Impelled




Frederick Jackson Turner - Each type of industry was on the march toward the West, impelled by an irresistible attraction. Each passed in successive waves across the continent.

Stand at South Pass in the Rockies a century later and see the same procession with wider intervals between.
