Famous quotes containing the words period and/or colonial:

    Talent is nothing but a prolonged period of attention and a shortened period of mental assimilation.
    Konstantin Stanislavsky (1863–1938)

    Are you there, Africa with the bulging chest and oblong thigh? Sulking Africa, wrought of iron, in the fire, Africa of the millions of royal slaves, deported Africa, drifting continent, are you there? Slowly you vanish, you withdraw into the past, into the tales of castaways, colonial museums, the works of scholars.
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)
