Famous quotes containing the word group:

    Just as a person who is always asserting that he is too good-natured is the very one from whom to expect, on some occasion, the coldest and most unconcerned cruelty, so when any group sees itself as the bearer of civilization this very belief will betray it into behaving barbarously at the first opportunity.
    Simone Weil (1910–1943)

    For me, as a beginning novelist, all other living writers form a control group for whom the world is a placebo.
    Nicholson Baker (b. 1957)
