Famous quotes containing the words society, country and/or blues:

    The cliché that women, more consistently than men, turn inward for sustenance seems to mean, in practice, that women have richly defined the ways in which imagination creates possibility; possibility that society denies.
    Patricia Meyer Spacks (b. 1929)

    I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)

    The blues women had a commanding presence and a refreshing robustness. They were nurturers, taking the yeast of experience, kneading it into dough, molding it and letting it grow in their minds to bring the listener bread for sustenance, shaped by their sensibilities.
    Rosetta Reitz, U.S. author. As quoted in The Political Palate, ch. 10, by Betsey Beaven et al. (1980)
