Famous quotes containing the words comments, harris and/or steve:
“My note to you I certainly did not expect to see in print; yet I have not been much shocked by the newspaper comments upon it. Those comments constitute a fair specimen of what has occurred to me through life. I have endured a great deal of ridicule without much malice; and have received a great deal of kindness, not quite free from ridicule. I am used to it.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past; he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future.”
—Sydney J. Harris (b. 1917)
“Who is your user, program?”
