    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    So that’s our new flag. The thing we’ve been fighting for—thirteen stripes for the colonies and thirteen stars in a circle for the union.
    Lamar Trotti (1898–1952)

    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    England is nothing but the last ward of the European madhouse, and quite possibly it will prove to be the ward for particularly violent cases.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)
