A man's feet must be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world.
— George Santayana

The camera relieves us of the burden of memory. It surveys us like God, and it surveys for us. Yet no other god has been so cynical, for the camera records in order to forget.
John Berger surveyed quote

I think somebody ought to do a survey as to how many great, important men have quit to spend time with their families who spent any more time with their family.
— Walter Cronkite

USA Today has come out with a new survey - apparently, three out of every four people make up 75% of the population.
— David Letterman

I sometimes think we ought to bring a bill before Congress changing our national symbol from the eagle to the buffalo, because we are more like the buffalo than the eagle. The eagle is a powerful bird. It flies alone. It rises up into the sky with authority. It is master of all it surveys. The eagle is an individualist and was selected from among the rest of the birds to be our symbol. But the buffalo was never alone. It always ran in a herd with other buffaloes. And, friends, I call your attention that the buffaloes are gone from the open range, but the eagles are still soaring.
