Famous quotes containing the words rising and/or degrees:
“Americans are notorious for looking to their children for approval. How our children turn out and what they think of us has become the final judgment on our lives. . . . We imagine that the rising generation is rendering historys verdict on us. We may resent children simply because we expect a harsh judgment from them.”
—C. John Sommerville (20th century)
“The political truths declared in that solemn manner acquire by degrees the character of fundamental maxims of free Government, and as they become incorporated with national sentiment, counteract the impulses of interest and passion.”
—James Madison (17511836)
