Famous quotes containing the word involve:

    The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.
    Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990)

    Live within your means, never be in debt, and by husbanding your money you can always lay it out well. But when you get in debt you become a slave. Therefore I say to you never involve yourself in debt, and become no man’s surety. If your friend is in distress, aid him if you have the means to spare. If he fails to be able to return it, it is only so much lost.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    My hardships, thank God, do not involve dirt or heavy lifting.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
