Famous quotes containing the words mellon and/or carnegie:

    There is no reason for any suggestion that Mr. Hughes would resign, nor is there any reason for the suggestion that Mr. Mellon would resign, if either of them did not get exactly what they wanted from Congress; and I am not going to resign because I don’t get what I want.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    I would as soon leave my son a curse as the almighty dollar.
    —Andrew Carnegie (1835–1919)
