Famous quotes containing the words steinbeck and/or john:

    This monster of a land, this mightiest of nations, this spawn of the future, turns out to be the macrocosm of microcosm me.
    —John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    I do not wish to see John ever again,—I mean him who is dead,—but that other, whom only he would have wished to see, or to be, of whom he was the imperfect representative. For we are not what we are, nor do we treat or esteem each other for such, but for what we are capable of being.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
