African Diary

Famous quotes containing the words african and/or diary:

    The African race evidently are made to excel in that department which lies between the sensuousness and the intellectual—what we call the elegant arts. These require rich and abundant animal nature, such as they possess; and if ever they become highly civilised, they will excel in music, dancing and elocution.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    A diary is more or less the work of a man of clay whose hands are clumsy and in whose eyes there is no light.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
