Famous quotes containing the words president, chief and/or state:

    ... [Washington] is always an entertaining spectacle. Look at it now. The present President has the name of Roosevelt, marked facial resemblance to Wilson, and no perceptible aversion, to say the least, to many of the policies of Bryan. The New Deal, which at times seems more like a pack of cards thrown helter skelter, some face up, some face down, and then snatched in a free-for-all by the players, than it does like a regular deal, is going on before our interested, if puzzled eyes.
    Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884–1980)

    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)

    There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
