Famous quotes containing the words history and/or performance:

    These anyway might think it was important
    That human history should not be shortened.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Nobody can misunderstand a boy like his own mother.... Mothers at present can bring children into the world, but this performance is apt to mark the end of their capacities. They can’t even attend to the elementary animal requirements of their offspring. It is quite surprising how many children survive in spite of their mothers.
    Norman Douglas (1868–1952)
