Famous quotes containing the words reserve and/or goals:

    Her face had the seamed reserve of the old in this country [Japan]. It was a neighborhood poignantly rich in old ladies.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    We cannot discuss the state of our minorities until we first have some sense of what we are, who we are, what our goals are, and what we take life to be. The question is not what we can do now for the hypothetical Mexican, the hypothetical Negro. The question is what we really want out of life, for ourselves, what we think is real.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
