Famous quotes containing the words flyer and/or american:

    How do you expect to learn to dance when you have not even learned to walk! And above the dancer is still the flyer and his bliss.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Profound as race prejudice is against the Negro American, it is not practically as far- reaching as the prejudice against women. For stripping away the sentimentality which makes Mother’s Day and Best American Mother Contests, the truth is that women suffer all the effects of a minority.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)
