Famous quotes containing the words charge and/or positive:

    It is hereby earnestly proposed that the USA would be much better off if that big, sprawling, incoherent, shapeless, slobbering civic idiot in the family of American communities, the City of Los Angeles, could be declared incompetent and placed in charge of a guardian like any individual mental defective.
    Westbrook Pegler (1894–1969)

    The most positive men are the most credulous.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
