~ Henry Brooks Adams

Quotation Bullet

The Americans are violently oral. That's why in America the mother is all-important and the father has no position at all -- isn't respected in the least.

~ W. H. Auden

Quotation Bullet

Of all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody's image. It was the land of the unexpected, of unbounded hope, of ideals, of quest for an unknown perfection.

And all the more fitting that the images which we make wittingly or unwittingly to sell America to the world should come back to haunt and curse us.
~ Daniel J. Boorstin
