Famous quotes containing the words poll, vision and/or critical:

    If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in that bus in Montgomery, she’d still be standing.
    Mary Frances Berry (b. 1938)

    “The god has not yet answered to our pity
    For the black vision and tangle in her brains,
    Nor is there knowing soever in the city
    Of the red histories that throbbed in her blue veins.”
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    His misfortune was that he loved youth—he was weak to it, it kindled him. If there was one eager eye, one doubting, critical mind, one lively curiosity in a whole lecture-room full of commonplace boys and girls, he was its servant. That ardour could command him. It hadn’t worn out with years, this responsiveness, any more than the magnetic currents wear out; it had nothing to do with Time.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
