Famous quotes containing the word aware:

    When people generally are aware of a problem, it can be said to have entered the public consciousness. When people get on their hind legs and holler, the problem has not only entered the public consciousness—it has also become a part of the public conscience. At that point, things in our democracy begin to hum.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    The shutters were drawn and the undertaker wiped his feet—
    He was aware that this sort of thing had occurred before.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    To a joke, then, I owe my first gleam of consciousness—which again has recapitulatory implications, since the first creatures on earth to become aware of time were also the first creatures to smile.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
