Famous quotes containing the words authority and/or local:

    The authority of any governing institution must stop at its citizens’ skin.
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    Back now to autumn, leaving the ended husk
    Of summer that brought them here for Show Saturday
    The men with hunters, dog-breeding wool-defined women,
    Children all saddle-swank, mugfaced middleaged wives
    Glaring at jellies, husbands on leave from the garden
    Watchful as weasels, car-tuning curt-haired sons
    Back now, all of them, to their local lives....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
