Famous quotes containing the word folklore:
“Someday soon, we hope that all middle and high school will have required courses in child rearing for girls and boys to help prepare them for one of the most important and rewarding tasks of their adulthood: being a parent. Most of us become parents in our lifetime and it is not acceptable for young people to be steeped in ignorance or questionable folklore when they begin their critical journey as mothers and fathers.”
—James P. Comer (20th century)
“So, too, if, to our surprise, we should meet one of these morons whose remarks are so conspicuous a part of the folklore of the world of the radioremarks made without using either the tongue or the brain, spouted much like the spoutings of small whaleswe should recognize him as below the level of nature but not as below the level of the imagination.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
