Villagers

Famous quotes containing the word villagers:

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    When the villagers were lighting their fires beyond the horizon, I too gave notice to the various wild inhabitants of Walden vale, by a smoky streamer from my chimney, that I was awake.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The villagers are untying their disguises, they are shaking hands.
    Whose is that long white box in the grove, what have they
    accomplished, why am I cold?
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
