Who is john dos passos?

Famous quotes containing the words passos and/or johns:

    The American people is out to get the kaiser. We are bending every nerve and every energy towards that end; anybody who gets in the way of the great machine the energy and devotion of a hundred million patriots is building towards the stainless purpose of saving civilization from the Huns will be mashed like a fly. I’m surprised that a collegebred man like you hasn’t more sense. Don’t monkey with the buzzsaw.
    —John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    In love’s deep womb our fears are held;
    there God’s rich tears are sown
    and bring to birth, in hope new-born,
    the strength to journey on.
    —Rob Johns (20th century)
