Famous quotes containing the words american and/or native:

    Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church. Sacralizing employees and property, this Church becomes progressively more blind to the possibilities of sacralizing person and community.
    Ivan Illich (b. 1926)

    O Scotia! my dear, my native soil!
    For whom my warmest wish to Heaven is sent,
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
