Famous quotes containing the words diary, african, bryson and/or bill:

    What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it, dull to the contempory who reads it, invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it!
    Ellen Terry (1848–1928)

    Exploitation and oppression is not a matter of race. It is the system, the apparatus of world-wide brigandage called imperialism, which made the Powers behave the way they did. I have no illusions on this score, nor do I believe that any Asian nation or African nation, in the same state of dominance, and with the same system of colonial profit-amassing and plunder, would have behaved otherwise.
    Han Suyin (b. 1917)

    You can always tell a Midwestern couple in Europe because they will be standing in the middle of a busy intersection looking at a wind-blown map and arguing over which way is west. European cities, with their wandering streets and undisciplined alleys, drive Midwesterners practically insane.
    —Bill Bryson (b. 1951)

    Little Bill Daggett: I don’t deserve this. To die like this. I was building a house.
    Will Munny: Deserve’s got nothing to do with it.
    David Webb Peoples, screenwriter. Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman)
