Famous quotes containing the words completed, financial, executive, statistics, richard, chief and/or tenure:

    Never is a historic deed already completed when it is done but always only when it is handed down to posterity. What we call “history” by no means represents the sum total of all significant deeds.... World history ... only comprises that tiny lighted sector which chanced to be placed in the spotlight by poetic or scholarly depictions.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    A theory of the middle class: that it is not to be determined by its financial situation but rather by its relation to government. That is, one could shade down from an actual ruling or governing class to a class hopelessly out of relation to government, thinking of gov’t as beyond its control, of itself as wholly controlled by gov’t. Somewhere in between and in gradations is the group that has the sense that gov’t exists for it, and shapes its consciousness accordingly.
    Lionel Trilling (1905–1975)

    She isn’t harassed. She’s busy, and it’s glamorous to be busy. Indeed, the image of the on- the-go working mother is very like the glamorous image of the busy top executive. The scarcity of the working mother’s time seems like the scarcity of the top executive’s time.... The analogy between the busy working mother and the busy top executive obscures the wage gap between them at work, and their different amounts of backstage support at home.
    Arlie Hochschild (20th century)

    We ask for no statistics of the killed,
    For nothing political impinges on
    This single casualty, or all those gone,
    Missing or healing, sinking or dispersed,
    Hundreds of thousands counted, millions lost.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    I don’t know how you feel, professor, but I feel like a knife that’s just stabbed a friend in the back.
    Earl Felton, and Richard Fleischer. Ned Land (Kirk Douglas)

    To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    A politician never forgets the precarious nature of elective life. We have never established a practice of tenure in public office.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
