Famous quotes containing the words service and/or public:

    I can counterfeit the deep tragedian,
    Speak, and look back, and pry on every side,
    Tremble and start at wagging of a straw,
    Intending deep suspicion. Ghastly looks
    Are at my service like enforced smiles,
    And both are ready in their offices
    At any time to grace my stratagems.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
