Famous quotes containing the words list of, groups, american, vietnamese and/or list:

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    And seniors grow tomorrow
    From the juniors today,
    And even swimming groups can fade,
    Games mistresses turn grey.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Alex Sebastian: Mother, mother.
    Mrs. Sebastian: Why are you up so early?
    Alex: I need your help.
    Mrs. Sebastian: Something is wrong?
    Alex: A great deal.... I am married to an American agent.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    Follow me if I advance
    Kill me if I retreat
    Avenge me if I die.
    Mary Matalin, U.S. Republican political advisor, author, and James Carville b. 1946, U.S. Democratic political advisor, author. All’s Fair: Love, War, and Running for President, epigraph (from a Vietnamese battle cry)

    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)
