Famous quotes containing the words group and/or virgin:

    The conflict between the need to belong to a group and the need to be seen as unique and individual is the dominant struggle of adolescence.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)

    The spring is here, young and beautiful as ever, and absolutely shocking in its display of reckless maternity; but the Judas tree will bloom for you on the Bosphorus if you get there in time. No one ever loved the dog-wood and Judas tree as I have done, and it is my one crown of life to be sure that I am going to take them with me to heaven to enjoy real happiness with the Virgin and them.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
