Traditional Biographies

Famous quotes containing the words traditional and/or biographies:

    Americans want action for their money. They are fascinated by its self-reproducing qualities if it’s put to work.... Gold-hoarding goes against the American grain; it fits in better with European pessimism than with America’s traditional optimism.
    Paula Nelson (b. 1945)

    ‘Tis the gift to be simple ‘tis the gift to be free
    ‘Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right
    ‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
    —Unknown. ‘Tis the Gift to Be Simple.
