Jamaica at The 1984 Summer Olympics Results By Event

Famous quotes containing the words jamaica, summer, results and/or event:

    So in Jamaica it is the aim of everybody to talk English, act English and look English. And that last specification is where the greatest difficulties arise. It is not so difficult to put a coat of European culture over African culture, but it is next to impossible to lay a European face over an African face in the same generation.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    A worm tells summer better than the clock,
    The slug’s a living calendar of days;
    What shall it tell me if a timeless insect
    Says the world wears away?
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    It amazes me when I hear any person prefer blindness to deafness. Such a person must have a terrible dread of being alone. Blindness makes one totally dependent on others, and deprives us of every satisfaction that results from light.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    The frequency of personal questions grows in direct proportion to your increasing girth. . . . No one would ask a man such a personally invasive question as “Is your wife having natural childbirth or is she planning to be knocked out?” But someone might ask that of you. No matter how much you wish for privacy, your pregnancy is a public event to which everyone feels invited.
    Jean Marzollo (20th century)
