The Sneetches and Other Stories Prejudice Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Story.Line)

Quote #4

They kept paying money. They kept running through / Until neither the Plain nor Star-Bellies knew / Whether this one was that one… or that one was this one. (Sneetches.81-83)

It's one thing to be prejudiced. It's another to pay money to stay in a group just so you can remain prejudiced. Thank goodness people would never do something so… oh, nevermind.

Quote #5

The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches / And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches. (Sneetches.95-96)

Good for the Sneetches. They've learned to get along despite their differences. Here's hoping they don't discover Internet forums anytime soon.
