America
Engrave this Quote The story of Americans is the story of arrested metamorphoses. Those who achieve success come to a halt and accept themselves as they are. Those who fail become resigned and accept themselves as they are.

Engrave this Quote Only conservatives believe that subversion is still being carried on in the arts and that society is being shaken by it.
