Famous quotes containing the words forces and/or armenian:

    There are only two forces that can carry light to all the corners of the globe ... the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The exile is a singular, whereas refugees tend to be thought of in the mass. Armenian refugees, Jewish refugees, refugees from Franco Spain. But a political leader or artistic figure is an exile. Thomas Mann yesterday, Theodorakis today. Exile is the noble and dignified term, while a refugee is more hapless.... What is implied in these nuances of social standing is the respect we pay to choice. The exile appears to have made a decision, while the refugee is the very image of helplessness.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
