Famous quotes containing the words vowel and/or system:

    Brute animals have the vowel sounds; man only can utter consonants.

    In nothing was slavery so savage and relentless as in its attempted destruction of the family instincts of the Negro race in America. Individuals, not families; shelters, not homes; herding, not marriages, were the cardinal sins in that system of horrors.
