Shopping For Hot Toys For The 2007 Holiday Season

Famous quotes containing the words holiday, season, toys, shopping and/or hot:

    With a broad shoehorn
    I am unstuffing a big bird in this dream
    Msomebody else’s holiday feast—
    and repacking the crop of my own,
    knowing it will burst with such
    onion, oyster, savory bread crust.
    Maxine Kumin (b. 1925)

    To the American People:MChristmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    If there is a species which is more maltreated than children, then it must be their toys, which they handle in an incredibly off-hand manner.... Toys are thus the end point in that long chain in which all the conditions of despotic high-handedness are in play which enchain beings one to another, from one species to another—cruel divinities to their sacrificial victims, from masters to slaves, from adults to children, and from children to their objects.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Children’s liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (b. 1939)

    Good-night to the Season!—the dances,
    The fillings of hot little rooms,
    The glancings of rapturous glances,
    The fancyings of fancy costumes;
    The pleasures which Fashion makes duties,
    The praisings of fiddles and flutes,
    The luxury of looking at beauties,
    The tedium of talking to mutes;
    Winthrop Mackworth Praed (1802–1839)
