Famous quotes containing the words line, ships and/or clan:

    For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding the public a steady line of sacred bull.
    Ralph Nader (b. 1934)

    Give blue-eyed men their swivel chairs
    To whirl in tall buildings.
    Allow them many ships at sea,
    And on land, soldiers
    And policemen.
    Arna Bontemps (1902–1973)

    It has now become the doctrine of a large clan of politicians that political honesty is unnecessary, slow, subversive of a man’s interests, and incompatible with quick onward movement.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
