North Point Press

Famous quotes containing the words north, point and/or press:

    When the Somalians were merely another hungry third world people, we sent them guns. Now that they are falling down dead from starvation, we send them troops. Some may see in this a tidy metaphor for the entire relationship between north and south. But it would make a whole lot more sense nutritionally—as well as providing infinitely more vivid viewing—if the Somalians could be persuaded to eat the troops.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    Oh! snatch’d away in beauty’s bloom,
    On thee shall press no ponderous tomb;
    But on thy turf shall roses rear
    Their leaves, the earliest of the year;
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
