“They were prepared to believe just about anything could happen in America.” -Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
Independence Day is coming up soon, and what better way to celebrate than with a patriotic quote about the U.S.?
Like: “The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted.”
From D. H. Lawrence’s Studies in Classic American Literature.
Or, “America was, to them, the place that good people went to when they died. They were prepared to believe just about anything could happen in America.”
From Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.
Or, “America is a land of wonders, in which everything is in constant motion and every change seems an improvement.”
From Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America.
