Famous quotes containing the words company, wilson and/or brothers:

    It has lately been drawn to your correspondent’s attention that, at social gatherings, she is not the human magnet she would be. Indeed, it turns out that as a source of entertainment, conviviality, and good fun, she ranks somewhere between a sprig of parsley and a single ice- skate. It would appear, from the actions of the assembled guests, that she is about as hot company as a night nurse.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    The Constitution of the United States is not a mere lawyers’ document. It is a vehicle of life, and its spirit is always the spirit of the age. Its prescriptions are clear and we know what they are ... but life is always your last and most authoritative critic.
    —Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Wi’ joy unfeigned brothers and sisters meet,
    An’ each for other’s weelfare kindly spiers:
    The social hours, swift-winged, unnoticed fleet;
    Each tells the uncos that he sees or hears;
    The parents, partial, eye their hopeful years;
    Anticipation forward points the view:
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
