Famous quotes containing the word america:
“I see an America whose rivers and valleys and lakes, hills and streams and plains; the mountains over our land and natures wealth deep under the earth, are protected as the rightful heritage of all the people.”
—Franklin D. Roosevelt (18821945)
“Kitsch is the daily art of our time, as the vase or the hymn was for earlier generations. For the sensibility it has that arbitrariness and importance which works take on when they are no longer noticeable elements of the environment. In America kitsch is Nature. The Rocky Mountains have resembled fake art for a century.”
—Harold Rosenberg (19061978)
“In America a woman loses her independence for ever in the bonds of matrimony. While there is less constraint on girls there than anywhere else, a wife submits to stricter obligations. For the former, her fathers house is a home of freedom and pleasure; for the latter, her husbands is almost a cloister.”
—Alexis de Tocqueville (18051859)
