Famous quotes containing the words wise and/or herbert:

    Fortunately, the time has long passed when people liked to regard the United States as some kind of melting pot, taking men and women from every part of the world and converting them into standardized, homogenized Americans. We are, I think, much more mature and wise today. Just as we welcome a world of diversity, so we glory in an America of diversity—an America all the richer for the many different and distinctive strands of which it is woven.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    When almost all was out, God made a stay,
    Perceiving that alone of all His treasure
    Rest in the bottom lay.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)
