Famous quotes containing the words villages and/or language:
“Its like a jumble of huts in a jungle somewhere. I dont understand how you can live there. Its really, completely dead. Walk along the street, theres nothing moving. Ive lived in small Spanish fishing villages which were literally sunny all day long everyday of the week, but they werent as boring as Los Angeles.”
—Truman Capote (19241984)
“Public speaking is done in the public tongue, the national or tribal language; and the language of our tribe is the mens language. Of course women learn it. Were not dumb. If you can tell Margaret Thatcher from Ronald Reagan, or Indira Gandhi from General Somoza, by anything they say, tell me how. This is a mans world, so it talks a mans language.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
