Famous quotes containing the words english and/or term:

    The English public, as a mass, takes no interest in a work of art until it is told that the work in question is immoral.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Mr. Roosevelt, this is my principal request—it is almost the last request I shall ever make of anybody.

I beg of you not to close your term of office without doing this.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
