Famous quotes containing the word published:

    Each class of society has its own requirements; but it may be said that every class teaches the one immediately below it; and if the highest class be ignorant, uneducated, loving display, luxuriousness, and idle, the same spirit will prevail in humbler life.
    —First published in Girls’ Home Companion (1895)

    Ignorance, forgetfulness, or contempt of the rights of man are the only causes of public misfortunes and of the corruption of governments.
    —French National Assembly. Declaration of the Rights of Man (drafted and discussed Aug. 1789, published Sept. 1791)

    I saw the best minds of my generation
    Reading their poems to Vassar girls,
    Being interviewed by Mademoiselle.
    Having their publicity handled by professionals.
    When can I go into an editorial office
    And have my stuff published because I’m weird?
    I could go on writing like this forever . . .
    Louis Simpson (b. 1923)
