Famous quotes containing the word affairs:

    There is a very holy and a very terrible isolation for the conscience of every man who seeks to read the destiny in affairs for others as well as for himself, for a nation as well as for individuals. That privacy no man can intrude upon. That lonely search of the spirit for the right perhaps no man can assist.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Every new development for the last three centuries has brought men closer to a state of affairs in which absolutely nothing would be recognized in the whole world as possessing a claim to obedience except the authority of the State. The majority of people in Europe obey nothing else.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
