Famous quotes containing the word tribal:

    I should consent to breed under pressure, if I were convinced in any way of the reasonableness of reproducing the species. But my nerves and the nerves of any woman I could live with three months, would produce only a victim ... lacking in impulse, a mere bundle of discriminations. If I were wealthy I might subsidize a stud of young peasants, or a tribal group in Tahiti.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Totem poles and wooden masks no longer suggest tribal villages but fashionable drawing rooms in New York and Paris.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    What is this conversation, now secular,
    A speech not mine yet speaking for me in
    The heaving jelly of my tribal air?
    It rises in the throat, it climbs the tongue,
    It perches there for secret tutelage....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
