What is Cuban itch?

Famous quotes containing the words itch and/or cuban:

    There are several sorts of curiosity: a curiosity of self-interest, for example, which makes us desire to learn things that may be useful to us; and one of pride, which proceeds from an itch to know more than other people.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Because a person is born the subject of a given state, you deny the sovereignty of the people? How about the child of Cuban slaves who is born a slave, is that an argument for slavery? The one is a fact as well as the other. Why then, if you use legal arguments in the one case, you don’t in the other?
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
