Famous quotes containing the words service, long, armed and/or services:

    The Service without Hope
    Is tenderest, I think—
    There is no Diligence like that
    That knows not an Until—
    Emily Dickinson (1831–1886)

    Greatness is a light-hearted title for theatrical entertainments. Or a definition endowed on men too long dead to know that it’s been awarded.
    Arthur Ross. Leslie (Tony Curtis)

    A woman’s beauty is a storm-tossed banner;
    Under it wisdom stands, and I alone
    Of all Arabia’s lovers I alone
    Nor dazzled by the embroidery, nor lost
    In the confusion of its night-dark folds,
    Can hear the armed man speak.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    We now in the United States have more security guards for the rich than we have police services for the poor districts. If you’re looking for personal security, far better to move to the suburbs than to pay taxes in New York.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
