Famous quotes containing the words construction and/or proposed:

    Striving toward a goal puts a more pleasing construction on our advance toward death.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    There is no legislation—I care not what it is—tariff, railroads, corporations, or of a general political character, that all equals in importance the putting of our banking and currency system on the sound basis proposed in the National Monetary Commission plan.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
