Famous quotes containing the words group and/or operative:

    Remember that the peer group is important to young adolescents, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Parents are often just as important, however. Don’t give up on the idea that you can make a difference.
    —The Lions Clubs International and the Quest Nation. The Surprising Years, I, ch.5 (1985)

    In the operative opinion of the world, he who is already fully provided with what is necessary for him, that man shall have more; while he who is deplorably destitute of the same, he shall have taken away from him even that which he hath. Yet the world vows it is a very plain, downright matter-of-fact, plodding, humane sort of world.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
