Famous quotes containing the words festival, oregon and/or bach:

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    In another year I’ll have enough money saved. Then I’m gonna go back to my hometown in Oregon and I’m gonna build a house for my mother and myself. And join the country club and take up golf. And I’ll meet the proper man with the proper position. And I’ll make a proper wife who can run a proper home and raise proper children. And I’ll be happy, because when you’re proper, you’re safe.
    Daniel Taradash (b. 1913)

    Music is the effort we make to explain to ourselves how our brains work. We listen to Bach transfixed because this is listening to a human mind.
    Lewis Thomas (b. 1913)
