“In place of a world, there is a city, a point, in which the whole life of broad regions is collecting while the rest dries up. In place of a type-true people, born of and grown on the soil, there is a new sort of nomad, cohering unstably in fluid masses, the parasitical city dweller, traditionless, utterly matter-of-fact, religionless, clever, unfruitful, deeply contemptuous of the countryman and especially that highest form of countryman, the country gentleman.”
—Oswald Spengler (18801936)

—For the State of Iowa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
“It is doubtful whether anyone who has travelled widely has found anywhere in the world regions more ugly than in the human face.”

—Joseph Addison (16721719)
