Famous quotes containing the word view:

    The women, who had congregated in the groves, set up the most violent clamors, as they invariably do here as elsewhere on every occasion of excitement and alarm, with a view of tranquilizing their own minds and disturbing other people.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Mine ear is much enamoured of thy note;
    So is mine eye enthrallèd to thy shape;
    And thy fair virtue’s force perforce doth move me
    On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
