 :: 10 Quotes of the Moment

Quotation Bullet

America -- rather, the United States -- seems to me to be the Jew among the nations. It is resourceful, adaptable, maligned, envied, feared, imposed upon. It is warm-hearted, over-friendly; quick-witted, lavish, colorful; given to extravagant speech and gestures; its people are travelers and wanderers by nature, moving, shifting, restless; swarming in Fords, in ocean liners; craving entertainment; volatile. The chuckle among the nations of the world.
~ Edna Ferber - [America]

Quotation Bullet

America does not concern itself now with Impressionism. We own no involved philosophy. The psyche of the land is to be found in its movement. It is to be felt as a dramatic force of energy and vitality. We move; we do not stand still. We have not yet arrived at the stock-taking stage.
~ Martha Graham - [America]

America is a mistake, a giant mistake.
~ Sigmund Freud - [America]

Quotation Bullet

America is rather like life. You can usually find in it what you look for. It will probably be interesting, and it is sure to be large.

Quotation Bullet

American dreams are strongest in the hearts of those who have seen America only in their dreams.
~ Pico Iyer - [America]

Quotation Bullet

By the definition accepted in the United States, any person with even a small amount of Negro Blood... is a Negro. Logically, it would be exactly as justifiable to say that any person with even a small amount of white blood is white. Why do they say one rather than the other? Because the former classification suits the convenience of those making the classification. Society, in short, regards as true those systems that produce the desired results. Science seeks only the most generally useful systems of classification; these it regards for the time being, until more useful classifications are invented, as true.
~ S. I. Hayakawa - [America]

Quotation Bullet

Good Americans when they die, go to Paris.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes - [America]

Quotation Bullet

I have a great fear for the moral will of Americans if it takes more than a week to achieve the results.
~ Michael S. Harper - [America]
