Famous quotes containing the word hire:

    Some of the offers that have come to me would never have come if I had not been President. That means these people are trying to hire not Calvin Coolidge, but a former President of the United States. I can’t make that kind of use of the office.... I can’t do anything that might take away from the Presidency any of its dignity, or any of the faith people have in it.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    Jalous he was, and heeld hire narwe in cage,
    For she was wilde and yong, and he was old,
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    ...Advertising companies hire the very brightest, wittiest young people to write for them. Not one single sentence of it is worth repeating. Why? Because it wasn’t meant.
    Brenda Ueland (1891–1985)
