Pierre Ceresole Quotes

"If the gooseberry said: I havent the heart to be a real proper gooseberry because if everyone were a gooseberry the world wouldnt continue to exist this would be a stupid argument and the world would be deprived of a useful fruit. If you are called upon to be a gooseberry in all the senses--pleasant or ludicrous--of the word, you should be one with all your heart and soul, without a backward glance."

Quotes About Standardisation

"When distinction of any kind, even intellectual distinction, is somehow resented as a betrayal of the American spirit of equal opportunity for all, the result must be just this terror of individualistic impulses setting us apart, either above or below our neighbours; just this determination to obey without questioning and to subscribe with passion to the conventions and traditions. The dilemma becomes a very real one: How can this sense of democratic equality be made compatible with respect for exceptional personalities or great minds? How can democracy, as we understand it today, with its iron repression of the free spirit, its monotonous standardisation of everything, learn to cherish an intellectual aristocracy without which any nation runs the risk of becoming a civilisation of the commonplace and the second-rate?" - Author: Harold Edmund Stearns

Quotes About Drunken Nights

"A gaggle of sophomore girls wavered by in their heels, en route from Bartlebys to some house party. No two of their tube tops or flouncy miniskirts were precisely alike, in cut or in color, and these slight variations made the outfits look all the more carefully orchestrated as they linked arms and passed by, pretending not to listen. Schwartz tried to comfort himself with a long look at their ten slender thighs turned pink by the cold, the good odds hed been between four or six of those thighs on oblivious drunken nights, but it was useless, the girls looked absurd to him now, and it no longer seemed that the universe contained an endless supply of anonymous pink thighs to which he could escape from his troubles. Pella would never dress like that." - Author: Chad Harbach
