—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Were having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave.”
—Irving Berlin (18881989)

—Eric J. Hobsbawm (b. 1917)
“A culture may be conceived as a network of beliefs and purposes in which any string in the net pulls and is pulled by the others, thus perpetually changing the configuration of the whole. If the cultural element called morals takes on a new shape, we must ask what other strings have pulled it out of line. It cannot be one solitary string, nor even the strings nearby, for the network is three-dimensional at least.”
—Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)
“Man was natures mistakeshe neglected to finish himand she has never ceased paying for her mistake.”
