Famous quotes containing the words fantasy and/or supermarket:
“The traditional American husband and father had the responsibilitiesand the privilegesof playing the role of primary provider. Sharing that role is not easy. To yield exclusive access to the role is to surrender some of the potential for fulfilling the hero fantasya fantasy that appeals to us all. The loss is far from trivial.”
—Faye J. Crosby (20th century)
“With the supermarket as our temple and the singing commercial as our litany, are we likely to fire the world with an irresistible vision of Americas exalted purpose and inspiring way of life?”
—Adlai Stevenson (19001965)
