Famous quotes containing the word adopted:

    Although all new ideas are born in France, they are not readily adopted there. It seems that they must first commence to prosper in a foreign country.
    Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    There was never a revolution to equal it, and never a city more glorious than Petrograd, and for all that period of my life I lived another and braved the ice of winter and the summer flies in Vyborg while across my adopted country of the past, winds of the revolution blew their flame, and all of us suffered hunger while we drank at the wine of equality.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    It has been played once more. I think you exist only
    To tease me into doing it, on your level, and then you aren’t there
    Or have adopted a different attitude. And the poem
    Has set me softly down beside you. The poem is you.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
