Famous quotes containing the words peoples and/or sea:

    ... we’re not out to benefit society, to remold existence, to make industry safe for anyone except ourselves, to give any small peoples except ourselves their rights. We’re not out for submerged tenths, we’re not going to suffer over how the other half lives. We’re out for Mary’s job and Luella’s art, and Barbara’s independence and the rest of our individual careers and desires.
    Anne O’Hagan (1869–?)

    Now I am powerless
    to draw back
    for the sea is cyclamen-purple,
    cyclamen-red, colour of the last grapes,
    colour of the purple of the flowers,
    cyclamen-coloured and dark.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
