Famous quotes containing the words human and/or geography:

    Them Oakies got no sense and no feeling. They ain’t human. No human being wouldn’t live the way they do. A human being couldn’t stand it to be so miserable.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    The California fever is not likely to take us off.... There is neither romance nor glory in digging for gold after the manner of the pictures in the geography of diamond washing in Brazil.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
