Famous quotes containing the word washington:

    For the people in government, rather than the people who pester it, Washington is an early-rising, hard-working city. It is a popular delusion that the government wastes vast amounts of money through inefficiency and sloth. Enormous effort and elaborate planning are required to waste this much money.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    Thou who, sinless, yet hast known
    All of man’s infirmity!
    Then, from Thine eternal throne,
    Jesus, look with pitying eye.
    —George Washington Doane (1799–1859)

    I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman’s cares.
    —George Washington (1732–1799)
