The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
My mother was determined to make us independent. When I was four years old, she stopped the car a few miles from our house and made me find my own way home across the fields. I got hopelessly lost.
Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down.
But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field.
Words have no wings but they can fly a thousand miles.
Can miles truly separate you from friends... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?
I doubt whether it is possible to project a system of government in which a colony 3000 miles distant from the parent state shall enjoy all the liberty of the parent state. I am certain I have never yet seen the projection.
It's not meant for someone to swerve across the road and hit it (head on) at 35 miles an hour.
Suddenly, about two miles from the pole, we started to come across open water. One of the sledges ended up getting dunked in water, and some of the dogs as well.
A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.
It was windy. There was a long causeway bridge where riders were getting blown side to side and 10 miles of poor road surface on large-pebbled asphalt. Kellen was still able to ride through (the flat) into second place.
Wilma has very quickly strengthened to a storm with winds of 175 miles per hour -- that's stronger than Katrina and Rita. Although it's not on course to hit oil platforms, it's still a few days away and if there's a slight change in course to the west, markets will jump aggressively higher.
There is an element of protesting too much. When you look at it, Berkshire Hathaway is not a million miles away from being a giant hedge fund or private- equity fund itself.
We're seeing 30 to 50 percent failure of tile and shingles when wind speeds are more than 110 miles per hour.
The testing program enables Detroit Diesel and Freightliner to gain valuable test miles from both a component and systems perspective so that they may continue refining the engine well before the start of production ever begins.
Sometimes we go a million miles per hour and don't let things develop properly. These past couple of games, we've been patient and have taken open shots. That's what we'll need to do against Mount Vernon, because that's a team that will guard you.
The range from a base station is typically six miles, but in hills, that will be a struggle.
You have to allow your body to slowly adapt for more miles. The big problem people have is wanting to go out and do too much too quickly.
We're 35 miles due east of the I-80/35 corridor. If you draw a circle of a 200-mile radius, you've got a whole heck of a lot of people. You've got Minneapolis, which is a very untapped market for racing. (Our) demographic (is) much broader than how many people are in central Iowa.
a narrative story -- one with a beginning, a middle and an end. I used to take miles and miles and hundreds and hundreds of pages of notes, and I still do. But now, about three-quarters of the way through the thing, I can see the structure of the story in my mind.
This whole miles-for-merchandise mini-movement is being forced onto the airlines by their own inability to make good on the promise of free award seats.
He said that she would have won a distance over two and a quarter miles, or two and a half, but that she was feeling the pinch over three. He is convinced she is not a staying mare but a Champion Hurdle mare.
They'll tell their agents to keep an eye out for someone who may have gotten a trip by buying miles. Next thing you know, you're buying a one-way ticket home and the agent is getting a $50 or $100 reward.
I respect their program. I grew up only 14 miles away in Monroe.
