Famous quotes containing the words cambridge, short and/or stories:

    For Cambridge people rarely smile,
    Being urban, squat, and packed with guile.

    I have made a short excursion into the new world which the Indian dwells in, or is. He begins where we leave off.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Television programming for children need not be saccharine or insipid in order to give to violence its proper balance in the scheme of things.... But as an endless diet for the sake of excitement and sensation in stories whose plots are vehicles for killing and torture and little more, it is not healthy for young children. Unfamiliar as yet with the full story of human response, they are being misled when they are offered perversion before they have fully learned what is sound.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
