Famous quotes containing the words giants, york and/or week:

    We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.... The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.
    Omar Bradley (1893–1981)

    New York state sentence for a Peeping Tom is six months in the workhouse. And they got no windows in the workhouse. You know, in the old days they used to put your eyes out with a red-hot poker.
    John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)

    A week is a long time in politics.
    Harold Wilson, Lord Riveaulx (1916–1995)
