— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

And there begins a lang digression about the lords o' the creation.
Robert Burns digression quote

I like school very much, and I'll go to college if my career slows down. But kids go to college to be where I am today. Not to put college down, but for me, it would be digressing.
— Dana Hill

A world in which elves exist and magic works offers greater opportunities to digress and explore.
— Terry Brooks

Excessive speed and quantity are, like chattiness and digression, besetting sins of cyber-assisted authorship.
— digression quotation by P. J. O'Rourke
