Famous quotes containing the word fitting:

    The most fitting monuments this nation can build are schoolhouses and homes for those who do the work of the world. It is no answer to say that they are accustomed to rags and hunger. In this world of plenty every human being has a right to food, clothes, decent shelter, and the rudiments of education.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    1st Guard. Is this well done?
    Charmian. It is well done, and fitting for a princess
    Descended of so many royal kings.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Of all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody’s image. It was the land of the unexpected, of unbounded hope, of ideals, of quest for an unknown perfection. It is all the more unfitting that we should offer ourselves in images. And all the more fitting that the images which we make wittingly or unwittingly to sell America to the world should come back to haunt and curse us.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
