Quotation Bullet

America and its demons, Europe and its ghost.
~ Le Monde - [America]

Quotation Bullet

America does to me what I knew it would do: it just bumps me. The people charge at you like trucks coming down on you -- no awareness. But one tries to dodge aside in time. Bump! bump! go the trucks. And that is human contact.
~ D. H. Lawrence - [America]

Quotation Bullet

America is neither free nor brave, but a land of tight, iron-clanking little wills, everybody trying to put it over everybody else, and a land of men absolutely devoid of the real courage of trust, trust in life's sacred spontaneity. They can't trust life until they can control it.
~ D. H. Lawrence - [America]

America is not a democracy, it's an absolute monarchy ruled by King Kid. In a nation of immigrants, the child is automatically more of an American than his parents. Americans regard children as what Mr. Hudson in ''Upstairs, Downstairs'' called ''betters.'' Aping their betters, American adults do their best to turn themselves into children. Puerility exercises droit de seigneur everywhere.

America: It's like Britain, only with buttons.

Quotation Bullet

American ''energy'' is the energy of violence, of free-floating resentment and anxiety unleashed by chronic cultural dislocations which must be, for the most part, ferociously sublimated. This energy has mainly been sublimated into crude materialism and acquisitiveness. Into hectic philanthropy. Into benighted moral crusades, the most spectacular of which was Prohibition. Into an awesome talent for uglifying countryside and cities. Into the loquacity and torment of a minority of gadflies: artists, prophets, muckrakers, cranks, and nuts. And into self-punishing neuroses. But the naked violence keeps breaking through, throwing everything into question.
~ Susan Sontag - [America]

Quotation Bullet

Americans are apt to be unduly interested in discovering what average opinion believes average opinion to be...
~ John Maynard Keynes - [America]

Quotation Bullet

Every American ought to have the right to be treated as he would wish to be treated, as one would wish his children to be treated. this is not the case.
~ John F. Kennedy - [America]

Quotation Bullet

For other nations, utopia is a blessed past never to be recovered; for Americans it is just beyond the horizon.
~ Henry Kissinger - [America]

Quotation Bullet

For this is what America is all about. It is the uncrossed desert and the unclimbed ridge. It is the star that is not reached and the harvest that is sleeping in the unplowed ground.
~ Lyndon B. Johnson - [America]
