Famous quotes containing the words silver and/or promoted:
“Maman, said Annaïse, her voice strangely weak. Here is the water.
A thin blade of silver came forward in the plain and the peasants ran alongside it, crying and singing.
Oh, Manuel, Manuel, why are you dead? moaned Délira.
No, said Annaïse, and she smiled through her tears, no, he is not dead.
She took the old womans hand and pressed gently against her belly where new life stirred.”
—Jacques Roumain (19071945)
“The most threatened group in human societies as in animal societies is the unmated male: the unmated male is more likely to wind up in prison or in an asylum or dead than his mated counterpart. He is less likely to be promoted at work and he is considered a poor credit risk.”
—Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
