Famous quotes containing the word catholic:

    One cannot really be a Catholic and grown up.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    I maintain that I have been a Negro three times—a Negro baby, a Negro girl and a Negro woman. Still, if you have received no clear cut impression of what the Negro in America is like, then you are in the same place with me. There is no The Negro here. Our lives are so diversified, internal attitudes so varied, appearances and capabilities so different, that there is no possible classification so catholic that it will cover us all, except My people! My people!
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Go, you are dismissed.
    [Ite missa est.]
