    A black sun has appeared in the sky of my motherland.
    Wuer Kaixi, Chinese student leader. Quoted in Independent (London, June 29, 1989)

    They that have grown old in a single state are generally found to be morose, fretful and captious; tenacious of their own practices and maxims; soon offended by contradiction or negligence; and impatient of any association but with those that will watch their nod, and submit themselves to unlimited authority.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Often, we expect too much [from a nanny]. We want someone like ourselves—bright, witty, responsible, loving, imaginative, patient, well-mannered, and cheerful. Also, we want her to be smart, but not so smart that she’s going to get bored in two months and leave us to go to medical school.
    Louise Lague (20th century)

    We ask not pardon for ourselves but justice for all American women.
    Alison Low Turnbull Hopkins (1880–1951)
