Famous quotes containing the words united states, kingdom, force, united, states and/or air:

    The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.
    C. Wright Mills (1916–1962)

    The masses of the sea
    The masses of the sea under
    The masses of the infant-bearing sea
    Erupt, fountain, and enter to utter for ever
    Glory glory glory
    The sundering ultimate kingdom of genesis’ thunder.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    The sure way of judging whether our first thoughts are judicious, is to sleep on them. If they appear of the same force the next morning as they did over night, and if good nature ratifies what good sense approves, we may be pretty sure we are in the right.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    The veto is a President’s Constitutional right, given to him by the drafters of the Constitution because they wanted it as a check against irresponsible Congressional action. The veto forces Congress to take another look at legislation that has been passed. I think this is a responsible tool for a president of the United States, and I have sought to use it responsibly.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    Sean Thornton: I don’t get this. Why do we have to have you along. Back in the states I’d drive up, honk the horn, a gal’d come runnin’ out.
    Mary Kate Danaher: Come a runnin’. I’m no woman to be honked at and come a runnin’.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    Old among the young, poor among the rich, I adopt an air of indefinable superiority.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
