Famous quotes containing the words america and/or north:

    Let America first praise mediocrity even, in her children, before she praises ... the best excellence in the children of any other land.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    In England if something goes wrong—say, if one finds a skunk in the garden—he writes to the family solicitor, who proceeds to take the proper measures; whereas in America, you telephone the fire department. Each satisfies a characteristic need; in the English, love of order and legalistic procedure; and here in America, what you like is something vivid, and red, and swift.
    —Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)
