Famous quotes containing the words moss and/or howard:

    When in the sea-light every early game
    Was played with love and, if death’s waters came,
    You’d rescue me. How I would take you from,
    Now, if I could, its whirling vacuum.
    —Howard Moss (b. 1922)

    It is not impossible, of course, after such an administration as Roosevelt’s and after the change in method that I could not but adapt in view of my different way of looking at things, that questions should arise as to whether I should go back on the principles of the Roosevelt administration.... I have a government of limited power under a Constitution, and we have got to work out our problems on the basis of law. Now, if that is reactionary, then I am a reactionary.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
