Famous quotes containing the words strategic and/or grand:

    Marriage is like a war. There are moments of chivalry and gallantry that attend the victorious advances and strategic retreats, the birth or death of children, the momentary conquest of loneliness, the sacrifice that ennobles him who makes it. But mostly there are the long dull sieges, the waiting, the terror and boredom. Women understand this better than men; they are better able to survive attrition.
    Helen Hayes (1900–1993)

    No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
