“... war brutalizes all whom it touches; if it did not do so it could not be endured.”
“While we have more than we need on this continent, and others die for want of it, there can be no lasting peace. When we work as hard in peacetime to make this world decent to live in, as in wartime we work to kill, the world will be decent, and the causes for which men fight will be gone.”
“We have sent Mr. Mink-monk, the happy macaque, to a good home with Borneo newly-weds; the bride says she wants something to pet, and to be company for her. Something is askew with this sentiment from newly-weds, but Mr. Mink-monk profits by it.”
“I believe that basically people are people ... but it is our differences which charm, delight and frighten us.”
Agnes Newton Keith, U.S. writer
(1901 - 1982)
