Amish Quotations

At Motel 6 in Amish Country I wonder if they leave the light on for you?
Jay London

I'm remote from most technology to the point that I'm kind of Amish.
Alan Moore

The Amish communities of Pennsylvania, despite the retro image of horse-drawn buggies and straw hats, have long been engaged in a productive debate about the consequences of technology.
Howard Rheingold

Until fairly recently, Amish teachers would reprimand the student who raised his or her hand as being too individualistic. Calling attention to oneself, or being 'prideful,' is one of the cardinal Amish worries. Having your name or photo in the papers, even talking to the press, is almost a sin.
Howard Rheingold

Warren E. Burger
