Famous quotes containing the word special:

    The treatment of the incident of the assault upon the sailors of the Baltimore is so conciliatory and friendly that I am of the opinion that there is a good prospect that the differences growing out of that serious affair can now be adjusted upon terms satisfactory to this Government by the usual methods and without special powers from Congress.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    Don Delillo (b. 1926)

    I have a special grudge against those who have the same faults as I do.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
