Who is c. john sommerville?

Famous quotes containing the words sommerville and/or john:

    If our entertainment culture seems debased and unsatisfying, the hope is that our children will create something of greater worth. But it is as if we expect them to create out of nothing, like God, for the encouragement of creativity is in the popular mind, opposed to instruction. There is little sense that creativity must grow out of tradition, even when it is critical of that tradition, and children are scarcely being given the materials on which their creativity could work
    —C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    There is nothing more agreeable in life than to make peace with the Establishment—and nothing more corrupting.
    —A.J.P. (Alan John Percivale)
