Famous quotes containing the words world and/or swimming:
“What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in the sense of fear of specific weapons, so much as its been memory. The memory of what happened at Hiroshima.”
—John Hersey (b. 1914)
“The swimming hole is still in use. It has the same mudbank. It is still impossible to dress without carrying mud home in ones inner garments. As an engineer I could devise improvements for that swimming hole. But I doubt if the decrease in mothers grief at the homecoming of muddy boys would compensate the inherent joys of getting muddy.”
—Herbert Hoover (18741964)
