Lyman Frank Baum
15. Mai 1856 Chittenango (New York) – 6. Mai 1919 Los Angeles – Lyman Frank Baum
Dorothy zu ihrem Hund: “Toto, I've [got] a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore” aus The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; Zitat ohne einem "got". Die genaue oder übertragene Bedeutung entzieht sich mir.
Es wird oft verkürzt zu: "We're not in Kansas anymore" wiedergegeben.
Bei Umfragen zu den bekanntesten Zitaten aus Filmen landete es – (verfälscht? mir ist nicht bekannt, was Judy Garland als Dorothy im Film sagt) – auf Platz vier. Kansas-Sprucher als Audio-Datei

"But it's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers." Von Judy Blumes Webauftritt

* 1947; robinson Rezension: Gilead
"It seems ridiculous to suppose the dead miss anything" (S. 5)
"Of course the odds are fairly high that the day of man's death will be the worst day of his life" (S. 124)
"I'm not going to force some theory on a mystery and make foolishness of it, just because that is what people who talk about it normally do" (S. 173)
"... in Scripture, the one sufficient reason for the forgiveness of debt is simply the existence of debt" (S. 183)
"I was trying to remember what birds did before there were telephone wires" (S. 188).
"I lie quite a lot, because when I do people believe me. It's when I try to tell the truth that things go wrong for me" (S. 194)
"... the same words that carry a good many people into the howling wilderness in one generation are irksome or meaningless in the next" (S. 201).
"So my advice is this – don't look for proofs. Don't bother with them at all. They are never sufficient to the question, and they're always a little impertinent, I think, because they claim for God a place within our conceptual grasp" (S. 204).
"He could knock me down the stairs and I Would have worked out the theology for forgiving him before I reached the bottom" (S. 217)
"I blame the radio for sowing a good deal of confusion where theology is concerned. And television is worse. You can spend forty years teaching people to be awake to the fact of mystery and then some fellow with no more theological sense than a jackrabbit gets himself a radio ministry and all your work is forgotten. I do wonder where it will end" (S. 237).
