Famous quotes containing the words country and/or language:

    Lars Jorgensen: It’s this country killed my boy. Yes, by golly, I tell you Ethan—
    Mrs. Jorgensen: Now Lars. It just so happens we be Texicans. A Texican is nothing but a human man way out on a limb, this year, and next, maybe for a hundred more. But I don’t think it’ll be forever. Someday this country’s going to be a fine good place to be. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground before that time can come.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    The writer’s language is to some degree the product of his own action; he is both the historian and the agent of his own language.
    Paul De Man (1919–1983)
