Who is jack levin?

Famous quotes containing the words levin and/or jack:

    If tragedy elicits our compassion, comedy appeals to our self-interest. The former confronts life’s failures with noble fortitude, the latter seeks to circumvent them with shrewd nonchalance. The one leaves us momentarily in a mood of resignation, the other in a condition of euphoria.
    —Harry Levin (b. 1912)

    Jack and Jill
    Went up the hill,
    To fetch a pail of water;
    Jack fell down,
    And broke his crown,
    And Jill came tumbling after.
    Mother Goose (fl. 17th–18th century. Jack and Jill (l. 1–6)
