    There can be no more ancient and traditional American value than ignorance. English-only speakers brought it with them to this country three centuries ago, and they quickly imposed it on the Africans—who were not allowed to learn to read and write—and on the Native Americans, who were simply not allowed.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    There is no art without Eros.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    But, depend upon it, you will love your native hills the better for being separated from them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If today there is a proper American “sphere of influence” it is this fragile sphere called earth upon which all men live and share a common fate—a sphere where our influence must be for peace and justice.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
