Famous quotes containing the words carolina and/or week:

    The great problem of American life [is] the riddle of authority: the difficulty of finding a way, within a liberal and individualistic social order, of living in harmonious and consecrated submission to something larger than oneself.... A yearning for self-transcendence and submission to authority [is] as deeply rooted as the lure of individual liberation.
    Wilfred M. McClay, educator, author. The Masterless: Self and Society in Modern America, p. 4, University of North Carolina Press (1994)

    I prefer surveying for a week to spending a week in fashionable society even of the best class.
    Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)
