Famous quotes containing the words head of, cabinet, military, head, prime and/or minister:

    And Death fell with me, like a deepening moan.
    And He, picking a manner of worm, which half had hid
    Its bruises in the earth, but crawled no further,
    Showed me its feet, the feet of many men,
    And the fresh-severed head of it, my head.
    Wilfred Owen (1893–1918)

    In a cabinet of natural history, we become sensible of a certain occult recognition and sympathy in regard to the most unwieldy and eccentric forms of beast, fish, and insect.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I’m not a military man, Captain. War holds no romance for me. The side effects are repulsive.
    Richard Bluel, and Henry Hathaway. Major Hugh Tarkington (Clinton Greyn)

    We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcæ, but Fashion. She spins and weaves and cuts with full authority. The head monkey at Paris puts on a traveller’s cap, and all the monkeys in America do the same.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    No woman in my time will be Prime Minister or Chancellor or Foreign Secretary—not the top jobs. Anyway I wouldn’t want to be Prime Minister. You have to give yourself 100%.
    Margaret Thatcher (b. 1925)

    Just let him be minister if that’s what he desires, but without his brother and his brother-in-law.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
