Famous quotes containing the words terms and/or concepts:

    Of course I’m a black writer.... I’m not just a black writer, but categories like black writer, woman writer and Latin American writer aren’t marginal anymore. We have to acknowledge that the thing we call “literature” is more pluralistic now, just as society ought to be. The melting pot never worked. We ought to be able to accept on equal terms everybody from the Hassidim to Walter Lippmann, from the Rastafarians to Ralph Bunche.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)

    Germany collapsed as a result of having engaged in a struggle for empire with the concepts of provincial politics.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
