In literally hundreds of instances, a vessel's ignorance of her longitude led swiftly to her destruction.

So my advice to you is, pull out that compass every once in a while and make sure you are navigating in the right direction on your journey. — John C. Maxwell

Return was impossible, and there was only one direction open ; and so we kept our compass pointed forward. [p. 286] — Diane Ackerman

Others believe that a moral compass develops over time, as a person learns about the decisions of others by observing the world and reading books. In any case, a moral compass appears to be a delicate device, and as people grow older and venture out into the world it often becomes more and more difficult to figure out which direction one's moral compass is pointing, so it is harder and harder to figure out the proper thing to do. — Lemony Snicket

It is the direction toward home. — Kathleen H. Hughes

Direction Compass Sayings By Stephen Covey: Our struggle to put first things first can be characterized by the contrast between two Our struggle to put first things first can be characterized by the contrast between two powerful tools that direct us: the clock and the compass. The clock represents our commitments, appointments, schedules, goals, activities - what we do with, and how we manage our time.

In an effort to close the gap between the clock and the compass in our lives, many of us turn to the field of "time management." — Stephen Covey
Direction Compass Sayings By Srinivas Rao: you should consider. But letting those 500 words serve as a compass for your goals you should consider.

Well that's a completely different direction than the one your dream is pointing you in. But — Srinivas Rao

Direction Compass Sayings By C.E. Murphy: We circled around and came in from the northwest." I lifted my wrist to show We circled around and came in from the northwest."

I saw a woman running down the street. There was a pack of dogs after her and a guy with a switchblade down the street in the direction she was running."

"Don't ma'am me . . . — C.E. Murphy

Direction Compass Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: THE NEXT DAY Reef, Cyprian, and Ratty were out on the Anarchists' golf course, during THE NEXT DAY Reef, Cyprian, and Ratty were out on the Anarchists' golf course, during a round of Anarchists' Golf, a craze currently sweeping the civilized world, in which there was no fixed sequence - in fact, no fixed number - of holes, with distances flexible as well, some holes being only putter-distance apart, others uncounted hundreds of yards and requiring a map and compass to locate.

Folks were constantly being beaned by approach shots barreling in from unexpected quarters. "This is kind of fun," Reef said, as an ancient brambled guttie went whizzing by, centimeters from his ear. — Thomas Pynchon
