Famous quotes containing the word national:
“The American, if he has a spark of national feeling, will be humiliated by the very prospect of a foreigners visit to Congressthese, for the most part, illiterate hacks whose fancy vests are spotted with gravy, and whose speeches, hypocritical, unctuous, and slovenly, are spotted also with the gravy of political patronage, these persons are a reflection on the democratic process rather than of it; they expose it in its process rather than of it; they expose it in its underwear.”
—Mary McCarthy (19121989)
