Famous quotes containing the words unit and/or task:

    During the Suffragette revolt of 1913 I ... [urged] that what was needed was not the vote, but a constitutional amendment enacting that all representative bodies shall consist of women and men in equal numbers, whether elected or nominated or coopted or registered or picked up in the street like a coroner’s jury. In the case of elected bodies the only way of effecting this is by the Coupled Vote. The representative unit must not be a man or a woman but a man and a woman.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    I have witnessed the tremendous energy of the masses. On this foundation it is possible to accomplish any task whatsoever.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)
