Famous quotes containing the words resources, department and/or human:

    I always put these pert jackanapeses out of countenance by looking extremely grave when they expect that I should laugh at their pleasantries; and by saying Well, and so?—as if they had not done, and that the sting were still to come. This disconcerts them, as they have no resources in themselves, and have but one set of jokes to live upon.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    ... the Department of Justice is committed to asking one central question of everything we do: What is the right thing to do? Now that can produce debate, and I want it to be spirited debate. I want the lawyers of America to be able to call me and tell me: Janet, have you lost your mind?
    Janet Wood Reno (b. 1938)

    Jove, nodding, shook the Heavens, and said,
    ‘Offending race of human kind,
    By nature, reason, learning, blind;
    You who through frailty stepped aside,
    And you who never fell—through pride;
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
