Famous quotes containing the words countries, communist, planning and/or urban:

    In some countries a hunting parson is no uncommon sight. Such a one might make a good shepherd’s dog, but is far from being the Good Shepherd.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    I have misplaced the Van Allen belt
    the sewers and the drainage,
    the urban renewal and the suburban centers.
    I have forgotten the names of the literary critics.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
