Jewel Spears Brooker Quotes

"The decline of sustained close reading of Eliot is also related, ironically, to the emergence of historical scholarship regarding sources and allusions. The major figure here is Grover Smith, who in the midfifties published an encyclopedic study of Eliots sources. 3 The mere existence of Smiths scholarly tome changed the shape of close readings of Eliot. The poets allusions and sources moved to the foreground of concern, and although most readers of Eliots poetry and plays benefited from Smiths work, others found themselves frustrated by the weight of the intellectual backgrounds."

Noel Ignatiev Quotes

"Whiteness is not a culture. There is Irish culture and Italian culture and American culture - the latter, as Albert Murray pointed out, a mixture of the Yankee, the Indian, and the Negro (with a pinch of ethnic salt); there is youth culture and drug culture and queer culture; but there is no such thing as white culture. Whiteness has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with social position. It is nothing but a reflection of privilege, and exists for no reason other than to defend it. Without the privileges attached to it, the white race would not exist, and the white skin would have no more social significance than big feet."

Quotes About Hang Out

"Making fiction for children, making books for children, isnt something you do for money. Its something you do because what children read and learn and see and take in changes them and forms them, and they make the future. They make the world were going to wind up in, the world that will be here when were gone. Which sounds preachy (and is more than you need for a quotebyte) but its true. I want to tell kids important things, and I want them to love stories and love reading and love finding things out. I want them to be brave and wise. So I write for them." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Dads Bill Cosby

"Doesnt the Federal Farm bill help out all these poor farmers?No. It used to, but ever since its inception just after the Depression, the Federal Farm Bill has slowly been altered by agribusiness lobbyists. It is now largely corporate welfare ... It is this, rather than any improved efficiency or productiveness, that has allowed corporations to take over farming in the United States, leaving fewer than a third of our farms still run by families.But those family-owned farms are the ones more likely to use sustainable techniques, protect the surrounding environment, maintain green spaces, use crop rotations and management for pest and weed controls, and apply fewer chemicals. In other words, theyre doing exactly what 80 percent of U.S. consumers say we would prefer to support, while our tax dollars do the opposite." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
