Famous quotes containing the words american and/or native:
“Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church. Sacralizing employees and property, this Church becomes progressively more blind to the possibilities of sacralizing person and community.”
—Ivan Illich (b. 1926)
“O Scotia! my dear, my native soil!
For whom my warmest wish to Heaven is sent,”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
