7 America Quotes from Literature

"It seems stupid to have discovered America only to make it into a copy of another country." ~ The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton "American slang is very expressive sometimes." ~ The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Americans are so charming, that we really must not mind their money." ~ The Rosary by Florence L. Barclay "In other countries, art and literature are left to a lot of shabby bums living in attics and feeding on booze and spaghetti, but in America the successful writer or picture-painter is indistinguishable from any other decent business man." ~ Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis Let America add Mexico to Texas, and pile Cuba upon Canada; let the English overswarm all India, and hang out their blazing banner from the sun; two thirds of this terraqueous globe are the Nantucketer's. For the sea is his; he owns it. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville "She behaves as if she was beautiful. Most American women do. It is the secret of their charm." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde He looked like an Italian, was dressed like an Englishman, and had the independent air of an American--a combination which caused sundry pairs of feminine eyes to look approvingly after him, and sundry dandies in black velvet suits, with rose-colored neckties, buff gloves, and orange flowers in their buttonholes, to shrug their shoulders, and then envy him his inches. ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
