Famous quotes containing the words jill robinson, jill and/or robinson:

    What else are we gonna live by if not dreams? We need to believe in something. What would really drive us crazy is to believe this reality we run into every day is all there is. If I don’t believe there’s that happy ending out there—that will-you- marry-me in the sky—I can’t keep working today.
    Jill Robinson (b. 1936)

    From the beginning, the placement of [Clarence] Thomas on the high court was seen as a political end justifying almost any means. The full story of his confirmation raises questions not only about who lied and why, but, more important, about what happens when politics becomes total war and the truth—and those who tell it—are merely unfortunate sacrifices on the way to winning.
    Jane Mayer, U.S. journalist, and Jill Abramson b. 1954, U.S. journalist. Strange Justice, p. 8, Houghton Mifflin (1994)

    Like a wild stranger out of wizard-land
    He dwelt a little with us, and withdrew;
    Black and unblossomed were the ways he knew,
    Dark was the glass through which his fire eye shined.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
