Charles Flip Nicklin Quotes

"One question that especially intrigues me is exactly when humpbacks started coming to Hawaii and why. In artwork and oral histories of ancient Hawaiians there is no record of humpback whales being there, and there is no evidence that humpbacks were there in large numbers in the mid-1800s during the heyday of whaling. The whalers who provisioned in Hawaii in the winter couldnt have overlooked the numbers of whales that are in Hawaii now. We really dont know what happened, but everything points to a recent colonization of humpbacks. (p.162)."

Emily Hahn Quotes

"There had been a time, until 1422, when a number of both Gaelic and Anglo-Irish students attended Oxford and Cambridge in England. But fellow students had complained that Irish living together in large numbers sooner or later got noisy and violent and there was no handling them. Accordingly, the universities imposed a quota system on Irishman, and decreed that those admitted must be scattered around among non-compatriots: exclusively Irish halls of residence were banned."

Elizabeth Farrelly Quotes

"Larsson was an active and lifelong feminist, partly for personal reasons but also because he saw that ending gender slavery was as crucial to next-stage evolution as ending race slavery was to the last stage. Its a noble fight, not least because the various fundamentalisms threatening Western democracy are united in their urgent need to re-cage womens sexuality.http://tiny.cc/steiglarsson"
