Famous quotes related to indian:
“We crossed a deep and wide bay which makes eastward north of Kineo, leaving an island on our left, and keeping to the eastern side of the lake. This way or that led to some Tomhegan or Socatarian stream, up which the Indian had hunted, and whither I longed to go. The last name, however, had a bogus sound, too much like sectarian for me, as if a missionary had tampered with it; but I knew that the Indians were very liberal. I think I should have inclined to the Tomhegan first.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I was happy there,
part Venetian vase,
part Swiss watch, part Indian head.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“As the Americans slaughter millions of turkeys every year for the celebration of their deliverance, the Indians, who should be celebrated as saviors, have long been slaughtered. There was even a time when a white man was paid a very decent price for every Indian scalp he could produce.”
—Friedrich Dürrenmatt (19211990)
“Music is so much a part of their daily lives that if an Indian visits another reservation one of the first questions asked on his return is: What new songs did you learn?”
—Federal Writers Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
“Ha ha! ha ha! This world doth pass
Most merrily Ill be sworn,
For many an honest Indian ass
Goes for a unicorn.”
—Unknown. Fara Diddle Dyno (l. 14)
