Famous quotes containing the words islam, psychology and/or medieval:

    Sooner or later we must absorb Islam if our own culture is not to die of anemia.
    Basil Bunting (1900–1985)

    Whatever else American thinkers do, they psychologize, often brilliantly. The trouble is that psychology only takes us so far. The new interest in families has its merits, but it will have done us all a disservice if it turns us away from public issues to private matters. A vision of things that has no room for the inner life is bankrupt, but a psychology without social analysis or politics is both powerless and very lonely.
    Joseph Featherstone (20th century)

    The medieval town, with frieze
    Of boy scouts from Nagoya?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
